Meredith women are strong. They are known for their leadership, academic accomplishments and ability to make a difference in their communities. Driven by a desire to attract the strongest students to Meredith, a group of alumnae established the Meredith Legacy Scholarship, the College's only full, four-year scholarship.
This prestigious scholarship is the highest honor available to an entering freshman, with a total estimated value of $170,000. Competition is open to any high school student, and the scholarship is awarded based on superior academic achievement, intellectual promise and leadership ability.
Meredith Legacy Scholars receive full tuition, room and board, books, supplies, international study, networking opportunities with the College president and alumnae, and other academic enrichment programs.
