SIUE Meridian Scholars Program

The Meridian Scholars Program is a premier program offering scholarships to students with strong academic ability and a record of personal achievement, leadership, service and special talents. Many valedictorians, salutatorians, and other top students who have earned at least a 27 ACT or 1210 SAT and at least a 3.75 high school grade point average or rank in the top 10% of their high school graduating classes compete for this award.

Meridian Scholars receive an eight-semester, renewable scholarship that pays in-state tuition, mandatory fees, housing at a residence hall at the shared room rate, and Meal Plan A. In addition, Scholars automatically are admitted into the Honors Scholars Program, in which they can help design a curriculum to explore their intellectual interests.

For consideration, an applicant must be an entering freshman and must submit:

  • an application for undergraduate admission by December 1;
  • the Meridian Supplemental Profile by December 1;
  • ACT or SAT scores;
  • an official copy of his/her high school transcript indicating class rank at the end of the sixth semester or later.
