Granted as $20,000 per year over four years for new students beginning in the fall of 2020
Any accepted applicant who meets (or will meet before matriculation) these criteria and attends Hampden-Sydney College will receive one of these awards. However, if the student is granted one of the College’s merit-based scholarships below the level of $20,000 per year, the Citizen-Leader Scholarship will take its place. If the student is granted a merit-based scholarship at the level of $20,000 or above per year, he will retain the merit-based scholarship and will receive an additional $1,000 per year for being an Eagle Scout or a Boys State Participant.
EAGLE SCOUT SCHOLARSHIP
Developing responsible citizenship, character, and self-reliance, Hampden-Sydney College embraces the values shared by Scouting. Every year at H-SC, approximately 10% of the entering class, have attained the rank of Eagle Scout – among the highest percentages at any colleges or university in the country.
BOYS STATE PARTICIPANT SCHOLARSHIP

The College has had great success in preparing young men for leadership. Positions with professional, civic, fraternal, religious, and political institutions and associations.
