3) strong academic excellence determined by the admission committee’s recommendation

This scholarship cannot be combined with other Pacifica Graduate Institute Scholarships. The amount of the scholarship award will be disbursed equally over each quarter of enrollment in each academic year and applied directly toward tuition, and therefore has no cash value. Scholarship students are expected to be enrolled full-time. If a student is not enrolled full-time, he or she must petition the scholarship committee for approval for the granting of a partial scholarship amount.

Yearly renewal is based on satisfactory academic progress (GPA of 3.5) at the posting of the spring quarter grades, and on timely progress through the curriculum.
