Scholars Program

The Roanoke College Scholars Program was designed to recognize and support freshman students of superior academic and leadership ability. These students have the opportunity to compete for four different awards.

The William Beard Scholarship provides students with a full tuition, room, and board scholarship. The Bittle Scholarship provides full-tuition scholarships for entering freshmen. The Baughman Scholarship, which along with other college assistance will equal at least half tuition at Roanoke College, or $2,500 annually, whichever is greater. The Faculty Scholarship will provide a $1,000 scholarship, over and above any other college-based awards, to those candidates who are selected as finalists and are not selected for the Beard, Bittle, or Baughman Scholarships.

All awards are renewed annually based upon the student’s grade point average.
