Presidential Scholars Fall Fly-In Program
Interested in attending 2014's Fall Fly-In? Invitations will go out in Summer 2014, so please make sure you're on our mailing list.
2014 Dates TBA
For High School Seniors
Each year COA selects a handful of students to each receive a Presidential Scholarship. This honor carries with it a merit-based scholarship that recognizes your academic achievement and contributions you've made to your community. If you have a passion for learning and a strong desire to create change, you could be an ideal student for COA and a candidate for the Presidential Scholarship. The first step in being considered for this scholarship is attending our Fall Fly-In event. If you are interested in attending, you must apply to participate.
We invite you to apply to become part of our Presidential Scholars Fall Fly-In Program, a four-day visit to the college where you will see for yourself how a COA education works. If selected for this program, we will cover the cost of your trip to the college and provide meals and housing while you are on campus.
If you are interested in being considered for this event and for the scholarship, please submit the following application materials to the Office of Admission:
- the Fall Fly-In Application Information Document
- an up-to-date copy of your transcripts
- an application essay inspired by Robert Shetterly's Americans Who Tell the Truth(more information can be found in the
Fall Fly-In Application Information Document)
We will contact you in early August to let you know if you’ve been selected to participate in the Presidential Scholars Fall Fly-In Program. We will then work with you to make travel arrangements for your visit to campus.
If you are not chosen to participate in the Presidential Scholars Fall Fly-In Program, please understand that this is a highly selective program. It does not mean that we do not think you are a good candidate for COA. Many students who have applied for the Fall Fly-In are not selected but still apply to COA, are admitted, and become stellar members of the community. Those who are admitted will still be eligible to receive need-based financial aid.
It is possible that students who aren’t participants in the Presidential Scholars Fall Fly-In Program demonstrate such strength in their applications for admission that they are chosen to be Presidential Scholars even without attending the Fall Fly-In Program.
Call the Office of Admission at 800-528-0025 or send us an e-mail for more information if you have questions regarding an application to attend the Presidential Scholars Fall Fly-In Program.
