Why you should attend a Scholarship Interview Day:


Scholarship Interview Day is your chance to earn more money for college. But it's more than that — you'll take a big step forward in your college preparation and you'll meet some of your eventual professors and classmates. Current students have said that their Scholarship Interview Day helped reinforce that Chatham was the right place for them and made them ahead of the game in planning out their college careers. 


Interviews take place with faculty in your academic area of interest, and many students report choosing the professors they meet with as their academic advisors. Throughout your time at Chatham, your advisor not only guides your studies, but also helps with internship, employment, and post-graduate opportunities. Attending Scholarship Interview Day can be the start of that connection that lasts well beyond your time at Chatham.


Financial Aid counselors will be on hand for 1:1 meetings to help answer questions about Chatham's affordability, applying for FAFSA, and other college financing questions.

Also, be sure to check out scholarships available to all incoming applicants, including our variety of major-specific and group-affiliated scholarships. Explore the ways you can earn more money for your education, including ones like:

▶ Presidential Scholarship

The Presidential Scholarship is a Full Tuition scholarship that covers tuition for each academic year, for a total of four years (or 120 credits) of study at Chatham University.

▶ Rachel Carson Scholarship

The Rachel Carson Scholarship is a full tuition scholarship awarded each year to one new first-year student entering Chatham and one new community college transfer student entering Chatham.

▶ Heffer Family Scholarship for Women

The Heffer Family Scholarship for Women is a $10,000 annually renewable scholarship awarded to female students who have a proven record of academic achievement, leadership capacity, as well as community and co-curricular involvement.


Take care of the details. Ready yourself by creating sample questions. Practice with mock interviews. It'll help you make the most of your Scholarship Interview Day.

Things to prepare for and think about:

  • What to wear? Dress for success: plan to dress for your day and show you mean business.

  • What makes Chatham tick – for you? What does Chatham offer that you are excited to learn more about? Or what do you think you can add to Chatham?

  • What's your Plus? If every university you've applied to offers your major, what is the "plus" outside of the classroom that you want to explore and get involved in at Chatham? What do you want to accomplish through it?

My interviewer on Scholarship Interview Day actually became my academic advisor, too. Talking and feeling comfortable with her that day had a big impact on my decision to attend Chatham.”
