Prospective Scholars

Application Process

Application to apply for the Fiat Lux Scholars Program for the Fall 2017 incoming first year students is now closed! The Fiat Lux Scholars Program application submission deadline will be Sunday, May 14th, 2017 at 11:59pm. After the submission deadline, the Fiat Lux Scholars Program Professional staff members will review all applications and use a holistic approach in choosing students that would benefit from the program. The applicant will be contacted late-May/early-June in regards to their application status. All communication from the Fiat Lux Scholars Program will be sent to the applicants' UC Merced email address, therefore, it is important for you to check it regularily. All students accepted into the program, before the Fall 2017 semester starts, will have to attend the required Fiat Lux Orientation (this is different than New Student Orientation) at an assigned time, which will be emailed to you at a later date. During the Fiat Lux Orientation, you will receive more information about the program requirements you will need to fulfill and you have the opportunity meet the Professional and Student Staff.

For students who are on-campus, and in the program, please note that you will have to select the Fiat Lux Living Learning Community during room selection.
