Quest Whole Person Scholarship

Quest Whole Person Scholarship award recipients must maintain good standing with the University and meet the renewal criteria for their level of award. Awards may be suspended for a period of time or canceled if recipients do not remain in good standing with the University as determined by the staff of Student Development.

Scholarship Renewal Criteria

For Quest Whole Person Scholarships up to $15,000:

  • Recipients must maintain a Whole Person Assessment (WPA) score of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale.
  • Recipients must maintain a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.5 or better on a 4.0 scale.

If the above criteria are met, the Quest Whole Person Scholarship will be renewed for the following academic year.

  • Should the recipient fail to maintain these standards, the following formula will be applied at the end of the spring semester:
[WPA + GPA]/2 must equal 2.5
  • When the GPA is taken into account, if the 2.5 standard is achieved, the Quest Whole Person Scholarship will be renewed for the following academic year.
