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