Goizueta Foundation Scholarship FAQs

Must I have a 3.0 GPA in order to apply?

Yes, students must have a 3.0 GPA in order to be considered eligible for the scholarship.

The Goizueta Scholarship at Armstrong is committed to assisting Hispanic/Latino students that have a demonstrated record of academic strength. The minimum GPA requirement of 3.0 was instituted by the program as the basic academic premise in order to continue promoting academic achievement among our Hispanic/Latino students. Once selected, Goizueta scholars must continue to abide by the program's academic standard, as well as take on a commitment to serve their community through volunteer hours.  Normally, the scholarship's award amount is fairly generous, and the program receives a great amount of applications from both incoming and current students; thus, competition is high, and the minimum GPA requirement allows the committee to select students that have an academic record consistent to the program's goal and commitment.

How will I be asked to demonstrate financial need?

To determine need, there is one of two potions:

How will my personal information (i.e. academic transcripts, background information, etc.) be obtained?

This information is pulled directly from your student record via SHIP.

What documents do I need to submit with my application?

You will only need to submit your two essays, and the three letters of recommendation from three different individuals, to complete your application. Everything should be submitted electronically using the scholarship software.

How do I submit my three letters of recommendations?

Once inside the application, you will be prompted to enter the names and emails of three individuals of your choice.  These individuals will receive an email from the software with a link to submit their electronic recommendation. They have until Friday, March 3rd to complete the recommendation. You will also have the ability to see the status of a recommendation letter by logging back into the scholarship software. Note: Mailed or emailed letters of recommendation will not be accepted.

What should my recommendation letters reflect on?

Your recommendation letters should reflect on your student contribution to all of the following areas:

Why do I need to certify that I release information?

All your identifying information from your SHIP account will be automatically released into the scholarship software. Because this information will be accessible to the scholarship committee, we need your authorization to move forward with the scholarship review process.
