Hi, my name is Brooke Kramer and I am a financial aid officer with Argosy University in Salt Lake City and today we're going to talk about what are academic scholarships. What an academic scholarship is is a scholarship based on your academic record, which means judges reviewing the scholarship are going to be looking for a high GPA and possibly as well as a service that you did while you were in school, but normally academic scholarships are completely set on your GPA. These academic scholarships are available for a variety of students including undergraduates, graduate, and doctoral students. If you do, if you are awarded for an academic scholarship, you are normally required to maintain a certain grade point average once you start attending college. So you want to make sure that you definitely maintain that GPA once you receive a scholarship because you might lose it if you otherwise drop below a certain grade point average. If you have additional questions regarding Pell grant, you can visit our website at www.argosy.edu.
