The College of Public Policy also offers the COPP Scholar Award to newly admitted first time freshmen and transfer students in the fall semester. There is no application for this award, recipients are selected by the College. The COPP Scholars Program was created by the College of Public Policy in 2014 as a way to provide financial support to outstanding students and attract the state’s highest achieving students. This award comes with a $1,000 stipend to be applied towards tuition and fees, as long as the students maintain a good academic standing.  Eligibility is based on SAT or ACT scores, high school class rank and/or transfer GPA.
