Charpie Scholarship

The Charpie Scholarship is an extremely competitive leadership scholarship offered to only a few students each year. The scholarship is not very publicized (on purpose), so there is not much information about it available online.

Selection process

  • Students are picked for leadership abilities.
  • No additional application materials are required.
  • About a dozen finalists are chosen and invited to CMU during a Sleeping Bag weekend to compete in "leadership activities."
  • The number of students selected to receive scholarships varies each year, but it is usually only a few (2-3).

Award details

  • Full-tuition scholarship (students still have to pay around $13,000 for room and board, books, etc.)
  • Special leadership, professional, and travel opportunities
