Scholarship Overview

The Centennial Scholars Program (CSP) at James Madison University provides financial support to talented first-generation Pell grant-eligible students from the Commonwealth of Virginia. This highly competitive award is open to incoming first-year and transfer students as well as current JMU students.

Students who are accepted into CSP (referred to as "Centennials") are awarded a combination of federal, state, and institutional grants totaling the cost of in-state tuition, mandatory fees, housing, and meals. Centennials must meet program-specific need-based eligibility requirements in future years to maintain the full value of the award.


Scholarship Criteria

To be considered eligible for the Centennial Scholars Program, all applicants must…

Incoming first-year and transfer students must exhibit high performance in a rigorous course load.
