Presidential Scholars Program

Boston College's Presidential Scholars Program covers the full tuition for four years along with the tuition for three summer programs (after freshman, sophomore, and junior years). Scholars also participate in biweekly Evening Speakers Sessions and Leadership Sessions in addition to a variety of other events.

There are no specific requirements. Rather, the Program looks for students with outstanding academic records, a commitment to community service, and leadership roles.

There is no separate application for the program. All who apply through Early Action (November 1) will be considered. Finalists will be made aware in late December and are invited to the campus for a weekend in February. There they have interviews and write an essay that will serve as the basis of the final decision.
