Gies Scholar Selection Process

The Admission Process for Gies Scholars has been re-designed from a first-year freshmen entry point to a rising-sophomore entry point. Effective Fall 2024, students interested in joining the Gies Scholar Program will complete an application process towards the end of the spring semester. All rising sophomores, intercollegiate transfer, and off-campus transfer students with three years remaining to complete their Gies degrees may also apply. The first cohort of this re-designed Gies Scholar Program will apply towards the end of the Spring 2025 semester for admittance for Fall 2025.

Along with academic achievement, the Gies Scholar Program is looking for students that demonstrate leadership skills, commitment to inclusion, service in the community, creativity, and strong critical thinking skills.

Application materials will be available for rising Sophomore applicants in the Spring semester.
