Sutton Scholars Program

  • Incoming freshmen for the fall semester with outstanding academic credentials can earn $2,000 Sutton Scholarships. Many of these scholarships can be renewed annually, leading to a total award of $8,000.

    To be considered, you must meet these minimum requirements:

    • Permanent Pennsylvania residence
    • 3.25 or higher GPA
    • 1100 or higher on SAT critical reading and math or 23 on ACT

    Those who complete the application* by October 31 receive first consideration for freshman scholarships from the Admissions Office. Due to limited funding, not all students who meet the above criteria will receive a scholarship. Scholarship offers are made in the order that complete applications are received.

    The Sutton Scholars Program is funded by the Foundation for IUP and gifts from alumni, friends, and employees of IUP.

    *A complete application includes a submitted application, application fee, high school transcripts, and SAT or ACT scores. (Contact the Admissions Office with any questions about submitting these materials.)
