Grade point average (often shortened to "GPA") is the average of a student's grades in all their courses; this number is used to evaluate how well, on average, a student performed in their courses.

There are two types of GPAs: "weighted" or "unweighted." The unweighted GPA is pretty straightforward; it is an average of a student's grades in their classes, taken at face value. An unweighted GPA can range from 0.0 to 4.0.

A weighted GPA is a bit different, however. Weighted GPAs take into account the difficulty or rigor of classes, giving students additional credit for the extra work these courses require. Additional points to advanced classes when calculating a weighted GPA. Typically, a weighted GPA can range from 0.0 to 5.0.

There are many college scholarship opportunities available for high-achieving students in high school and college. Students with a grade point average of 3.0 tend to have higher grades than average students, receiving scores within the range of 83-86. These students are eligible for a variety of scholarship programs, depending on their passions and identities, so that they can pursue higher education and achieve their career aspirations.

About Scholarships for 3.0 GPA

High school seniors, undergraduate, and graduate school students with a GPA of 3.0 or above can apply for several scholarships on Bold.org. There are also scholarship programs for particular courses of study with a minimum GPA requirement; students with a 3.0 GPA may have a leg up in many scholarships evaluated on the basis of academic merit.

Though federal financial aid often does not cover the entirety of student college expenses, it's still important to apply for federal aid via FAFSA. Students should also visit their university's financial aid office for more information. Private academic scholarships are also a helpful resource to make up the difference.

Don't forget to look for 3.0 scholarships that are super niche like scholarships that encourage extracurricular activities or adult learners to minimize the applicant pool when you apply.

What Is a 3.0 GPA scholarship?

A 3.0 GPA scholarship is a form of financial aid available to aspiring students with GPAs of 3.0 and above. These scholarships can help support high-achieving students in varying fields of study.

Some of these scholarships are geared toward students in certain courses of study, while others may require demonstrated financial need, a minimum GPA, or high academic achievement. Some scholarship programs may be exclusively offered at particular colleges and universities. 3.0 GPA scholarships are a helpful financial resource to support students pursuing higher education, and there are many available here on Bold.org.

Can You Get a Scholarship with a 3.0 GPA?

Yes, there are many scholarships available for students with a 3.0 GPA. Most academic merit-based scholarships require minimum GPAs of between 2.0 and 3.0, with more competitive awards sometimes requiring a GPA of 3.5 or higher.

How to Apply for 3.0 GPA Scholarships

Each scholarship has different eligibility requirements, so always check the scholarship description before spending time on your application. The applications for these scholarships may require some sort of scholarship essay or writing sample. Some scholarships may require a transcript or a minimum GPA, while others may require additional forms and references.

The specific posting will always have the requirements for that scholarship application, so make sure to reference it before submitting it. These can include requirements regarding locations, ethnicity, area of study, grade level, and more. Thus, whether you are a high schooler or one of the many incoming students at a university, you are sure to find the right scholarship program for you.

High school students, especially students in their junior year or senior year, should begin researching and applying for scholarships as soon as possible. Moreover, college students — both undergraduate students and graduate students — can apply for scholarships throughout their college careers!

How to Get a 3.0 GPA Scholarship?

Always reference the application and eligibility requirements of the scholarships in which you are interested to make sure you are a good fit and better your chances of success. Make sure to check before beginning your essay or application so that you don't waste any time on opportunities you don't qualify for.

Since there's less competition for narrow scholarships, students should consider scholarships with many criteria, such as scholarships specifically for people with particular identities, financial and educational backgrounds, or fields of interest. There are also scholarships exclusively available to students who attend a particular college or university or who live in a certain state. Some scholarships may only be available to students who demonstrate financial need.

A narrow, specific scholarship program will likely have smaller application pools than a scholarship program for all students, or even all students with a 3.0 GPA. Consider scholarships that are geared to other intersections of your identity, skills, or interests. The fewer eligible applicants there are, the more likely you'll be to win!

Though many 3.0 GPA scholarships are only awarded one time, there are also many opportunities that are awarded annually. Students can apply for these scholarships each year for additional chances to earn financial support. Many scholarships review applications on a rolling basis, so apply early to better your chances!

What About Scholarships Without a GPA Requirement?

Many scholarships don't have a specific minimum GPA requirement. This is because there are many other factors that impact a student's academic success, and thus should be included in evaluations.

Some of these factors include class rank, SAT and/or ACT scores, previous classes taken, and letters of recommendation. GPA alone doesn't paint a full picture of a student's academic abilities, so many decision panels have adapted to evaluating applications holistically and avoiding putting too much weight on one facet of a student's application.

Are Scholarships Counted as Income?

Generally, scholarship money is not counted as income, as long as the money goes to qualified expenses and doesn't exceed your total costs. The scholarship award must be used for school-related expenses, like tuition and fees, books, and school supplies. Scholarship money is taxable if it is used for indirect costs, even if they're college-related, such as room and board, food, or travel.

Scholarships from Bold.org are sent directly to the school of the winner and applied towards qualifying educational costs, so you don't need to worry about reporting it as income or paying taxes on it.
