Admission: Competitive Scholarship Day

We invite all students applying for fall 2014 admission to also apply for our annualĀ Academic Competitive Scholarship Day program, which occurs on Sunday, February 16, 2014.

During this scholarship event, prospective students have an opportunity to meet with our students and professors, stay overnight on campus, attend a class and potentially win between $12,000 and $20,000 by taking one of our competitive exams. Exams are offered in 30 different subject areas, and students need not take the exam in the area they intend on studying. Rather, we encourage students to select exams they feel most confident in the subject area.

This opportunity is an invitation-only event and to qualify for consideration, prospective studentsĀ must do the following by December 1:

  1. Complete the entire application for admission (go to: for a checklist
  2. Complete the Competitive Scholarship Day questions on Linfield’s Member Question section of the Common Application

As the deadline falls on a Sunday, materials sent by December 2 will be eligible for scholarship consideration. You can read more about the event online at Competitive Scholarship Day.
