They are based on need and merit (Grade Point Average 3.0 min.) or on merit alone. Pellegrini Scholarships do not renew automatically, but may be applied for each year.

Pellegrini scholarships are paid directly to the recipients' schools in two installments, one at the beginning of the Fall semester, the other at the start of the Spring semester.
