A Gardner-Webb University student studying on campus

Tucker Scholarship Application Process

The application process for the Tucker Scholarship starts with the applicant being nominated by a non-family mentor. Typically, the nominator is a school counselor, teacher, minister, or community leader. The nominator will complete the online form on behalf of the student. The student can request a mentor to consider nominating them for the award.

The second step is for the student to complete the Tucker Scholarship packet and the undergraduate admission application. The packet will include high school transcripts, an official SAT/ACT score, a thoughtful essay, and provide two references of character and academic accomplishments.

Once the student starts the process, the GWU admissions team will work with the student to complete the process to be considered for the scholarship. GWU will invite qualified students to interviews in December.

Individual parts of the scholarship packet:

  1. Nomination by non-family mentor
  2. Application for the Tucker Scholarship
  3. Accepted undergraduate application to Gardner-Webb University
  4. Official high school transcripts and SAT/ACT scores
  5. Essay
  6. Minimum of two references to include both academic and character mentors
