The scholarship will be equal to current undergraduate in-state tuition and fees, the current Resident Hall fee (double room) including the full meal plan, and the current average cost of books for a full-time student in good academic standing. Recipients are eligible to reapply. Graduate and undergraduate students may apply. Current ESU students may submit an unofficial transcript from Buzz-In.
