Fall Fly In

Presidential Scholars Fall Fly-In
Program dates: October 1-4, 2015
Application due: July 20, 2015

Each year College of the Atlantic selects a group of incoming students to receive a Presidential Scholarship. This merit scholarship is awarded to COA applicants based on their academic achievements and contributions to their communities. All COA applicants are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships. However, attending the Fall Fly-In event is one important way for the COA admission staff to learn about you and your goals for college and beyond. If you have a passion for learning and a strong desire to create change, you could be an ideal student for COA and a strong candidate for the college's Presidential Scholarship.

We invite you to apply to become part of COA's 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.

We will contact you in early August to let you know if you’ve been selected to participate in the Fall Fly-In. We will then work with you to make travel arrangements for your visit to campus.

If you are not chosen to participate, it doesn't mean that you aren't a strong candidate for COA. Because the Fall Fly-In is a highly selective program, each year there are many students who are not selected but still attend COA and become stellar members of the community. All students admitted to COA are eligible to receive both merit-based and need-based financial aid; students are not required to participate in the Fall Fly-In program to be considered for a presidential scholarship.

Interested in attending 2015's Fall Fly-In? Invitations will go out this summer, so please make sure you're on our mailing list.
