The scholarship offers many special benefits, including:

  • full tuition for four years;
  • our pledge to meet your financial need (as determined by the FAFSA and CSS Profile) that is not covered by the Coronat Scholarship;
  • full funding (tuition, room and board, and funds for airfare and expenses) for one Syracuse Abroad international study opportunity, either short-term, summer, or semester;
  • funding for one summer of approved study, research, or volunteer work (awarded on a competitive basis);
  • admission to the Renée Crown University Honors Program; and
  • mentoring for prominent national scholarships including Rhodes, Marshall, Fulbright, Truman and others.

Chosen based on leadership and service activities, Coronat scholars have superb academic records with a mean GPA of 4.15 and a mean SAT of 1480 (combined math and verbal). They have been National Merit Scholarship finalists, members of finalist Odyssey of the Mind teams, high school valedictorians and top scorers on national language and science exams.
