Maintaining the Academic Merit Scholarship
The Academic Merit Scholarship is renewable upon recipient maintaining an acceptable institutional GPA at Providence.

If a student’s cumulative GPA drops below the criteria by the end of the year the student will lose his/her scholarship. If the student raises the GPA above that criteria in one of the following years at Providence, re-application for the scholarship is possible. Students have the right to appeal any scholarship decisions to the scholarship appeals committee.

2.7-3.24 high school GPA=2.0 college GPA
3.25-3.74 high school GPA=2.5 college GPA
