You will have the opportunity to apply for two unique opportunities at Roberts Wesleyan College:
- BT Roberts Scholarship | You could be one of three students to receive a full-tuition scholarship (after financial aid). The award will be determined based on an interview, essay, SAT/ACT scores, and high school academic performance. You must attend the Academic Scholarship Weekend to be eligible for this award. The three recipients of this award will be notified by March 6.
- Global Honors Program | Experience the world with the Global Honors Program!
- Year One – Explore Rochester’s rich history, and study the interconnectedness of historical events, religions, and ethical issues around the world.
- Year Two – Experience literature, art, and music in a global context.
- Summer 2022 – Participate in a three-week, all-expense-paid course in Brazil.
In addition, you will:
- Enjoy hors d'oeuvres and dinner with Roberts faculty, staff, and students.
- Stay overnight on campus with current students.
- Learn more about the academic programs at Roberts.
- Experience the unique way Roberts integrates faith, academics, and service.

To be invited to Academic Scholarship Weekend, a student must:
- Be accepted to Roberts Wesleyan College
- Evidence of strong academic performance in a college-preparatory program as indicated by SAT and ACT scores, high school courses, grade point average, class rank, etc.
- RSVP by January 17
All participants will take part in a group discussion and essay process. This is used as a basis for the BT Roberts Scholarship and the Global Honors Program. While you may choose whether you wish to be considered for the Global Honors Program, it is expected that all attendees will complete the interview process. If you are unable to attend the weekend, you will still have a chance to apply to the Global Honors Program, but you will not be eligible for the BT Roberts Scholarship.
All students will stay on campus with a student host. Parents from outside of Rochester are encouraged to stay in an area hotel.
Please note: Parents are encouraged to join you for the Weekend’s activities; however, this event is not open to additional family members. If you’d like to invite additional family members to visit the campus with you, please register for an upcoming Preview Day or plan an Individual Visit.
