Francis Marion Academic Distinction Scholarship

The Distinction Scholarship is a $1,000 scholarship that is automatically awarded to first-year students who have been accepted to Francis Marion University and have met our scholarship criteria. Awards will be made through March 15th for students planning to enroll at FMU for the Fall 2016 semester.

Scholarship Criteria:

  • Cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • SAT Score of 1100 (Critical Reading and Math) or higher or ACT Composite Score of 24 or higher

The Distinction Scholarship is renewable for 4 years by completing 30 semester hours a year and maintaining a 3.0 GPA.

Students awarded this scholarship are encouraged to apply for other scholarships through the Office of Admissions. If a student applies and receives one of the other scholarships, the Distinction Scholarship will be replaced and not awarded in addition to the other scholarship offered by the Office of Admissions.
