During the second and third year scholars may continue to receive room & board and books, contingent upon them meeting the minimum cumulative GPA requirement for the Merit Scholarship.  The Merit Scholarship will cover a portion or full tuition, based on the cumulative GPA scale below.  Scholars will be expected to pay for any remaining tuition cost that the Merit Scholarship does not cover.  This cost can be supplemented by student wages earned, if they should seek employment.  To learn more about the merit scholarship that would be applicable to scholars in years 2 and 3, please visit http://financialaid.byuh.edu/Merit_Scholarship.
