Scholarship Grid

Dixie State University awards Academic Scholarships to 2020 High School graduates based on High School GPA & ACT. The formula is simple, take your cumulative GPA multiplied by 10 and add your ACT score. (Example: If you have a 3.8 GPA and a 27 ACT… 3.8 x 10 = 38 + 27 for a score of 65)

Now, match your score with the Scholarship Grid to see what your scholarship will be. Remember, you must be admitted to apply for a scholarship.

Deadlines:

  • Top 3 – March 1st
  • WUE – July 15th
  • Good Neighbor – July 15th
  • Dixie Half Merit – July 15th
