Porter-Billups Scholarship at Regis
Financial Aid requirements:
- Candidates must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and provide any additional required documentation for each year they attend Regis University.
- The FAFSA should be completed and submitted by March 1 of the candidate’s senior year in high school and every year while enrolled at Regis.
Size & Scope of the Porter-Billups Scholarship:
- Eligible candidates who demonstrate financial need above $5,000 through the financial aid process will receive an annual award equal to their calculated financial need or tuition and fees, whichever is the lesser amount, for four years (eight semesters) of full-time study in any traditional undergraduate program that Regis offers.
- Eligible candidates who have demonstrated financial need above $5,000 will receive a Porter-Billups Scholarship of $5,000 per year.
- The source of these scholarship dollars will include all available federal grants, Colorado state grants, and existing Regis grants and scholarships.
- These scholarships may only be used for courses during traditional fall and spring semesters. Recipients are eligible to apply for loans and work-study awards to help fund other costs of attendance, such as room, board and books. They also may apply leadership awards (e.g. Residence Assistantships, Peer Minister) and outside private scholarships (e.g. Lions Club Scholarship) to these other costs of attendance.
- Application fees and commitment deposits will be waived.
- Recipients are expected to send thank you notes and/or attend events with donors of privately funded scholarships.
To maintain continued eligibility:
Porter-Billups Scholars must maintain full-time academic standing each semester and a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.5.
