HOWARD UNIVERSITY FRESHMAN SCHOLARSHIPS (HUFS)
Available to incoming First Time in College Students (FTICs). The HUFS award criteria for incoming freshmen may change every year. No internal application is needed. Eligibility for merit-based awards is determined based on students' SAT/ACT scores/high school GPAs that are entered into our system by the Office of Admissions.
Allocations for HUFS Transfer scholarships may change every year as well. This means funding may not be available every year for new transfer students. However, transfer students who previously received the HUFS Transfer awards may continue to receive them as long as they are meeting the criteria outlined in their contracts for renewal.
Eligibility for need-based HUFS awards is determined based on a range of students’ Expected Family Contribution (EFC). FAFSA is required for domestic students. ISFAA is required for international students. Students may accept their HUFS offers by accepting the Terms and Conditions on their BisonWeb portal in addition to signing and submitting the HUFS Acceptance Agreement to the Office of Financial Aid by the designated deadline.
HUFS awards will expire after 4 years of enrollment or if the undergraduate student graduates before completing 4 years. The full-time earned credits and cumulative GPA requirements are outlined in the eligibility requirements of the individual contracts.
