What is the full value of the merit scholarship?

The value of the merit scholarship, quoted in your award letter, is based on the academic year for undergraduate study only. Depending on your plan of study, four-year or two-year program, the merit scholarship is good for up to four years (eight consecutive semesters) of full-time enrollment or two years (four consecutive semesters) of full-time enrollment. For example, if your merit scholarship is $10,000 and you are enrolled in a full four-year (eight semesters) program, the total value of the merit scholarship is $40,000 ($10,000 per year for four years). Similarly, if your merit scholarship is $10,000 and you are enrolled in a two-year (four semesters) program, the total value of the award is $20,000 ($10,000 per year for two years).
