Application and Selection

High School Seniors: The Ingram Scholars Program application is strongly encouraged; preference is given to those who apply. Applicants apply via MyAppVU after submitting admission application. Ingram Scholars Program applications for prospective freshmen must be submitted electronically via your MyAppVU account by December 1, 2021.

The Ingram Scholars Program is committed to recruiting students with unique ways of knowing, navigating, and experiencing the world, and recognizes that the continued success of our work is predicated on a diverse body of student experience. Candidates from underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.

Currently enrolled first year students may apply for 2021-2022 and must submit the electronic Ingram Scholars Program Application by February 21, 2021.

Ingram Scholars are selected on the basis of commitment to community service, strength of personal character, and leadership potential. In evaluating candidates, the selection committee reviews the Ingram Scholarship application along with the entire application for first-year admission. Ingram Scholar Finalists are also required to interview with the selection committee.
