The President’s Diversity Scholarship
The President’s Diversity Scholarship is designed to help meet the vision goals laid out in Piedmont’s Nine Vision Benchmarks. The Fourth Vision Benchmark states, “We will actively seek, recruit, equip, and graduate increasing numbers of diverse students prepared to invest their lives in effective Christian ministry.” Said another way, Piedmont International University seeks to reflect the ethnic diversity of the United States on our main campus. According to the 2010 United States Census, Hispanics make up 16% of the population. African Americans are at 13%, Asians make up 5%, Native Americans and Native Hawaiians are less than 1% each. In an effort to reflect those ratios on Piedmont’s main campus, the President’s Diversity Scholarship is offered to qualifying recipients for one-third off tuition. All recipients must be U.S. citizens of an ethnic minority.
This one-third need-based award is available to non-U.S. citizens who demonstrate academic capability, good character, and are ineligible for federal financial aid.
