Hello! It's awesome that you're considering Syracuse University. They do offer a variety of merit-based scholarships. Although scholarship programs might change from year to year, I'll provide some general information about their merit scholarships.

1. Chancellor's Scholars Program: This scholarship is awarded to the top admitted students each year. While the selection process is highly competitive, recipients receive around half the cost of tuition for four years, provided they maintain a good academic standing.

2. Coronat Scholars Program: This scholarship is offered to students with exceptional academic achievements, unique talents, and a strong commitment to community service. It covers full tuition, room, and board, and also includes funding for study abroad or research projects.

3. Maxwell Dean's Scholarships: Exclusively for students admitted to the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, this scholarship covers around half the cost of tuition. The selection is on the basis of academic excellence and leadership potential.

4. Founders' Scholarships: This scholarship is awarded to top applicants and typically covers around one-third of the cost of tuition. No separate application is required.

5. Dean's Scholarships: These scholarships are for students who display strong academic records and engagement in extracurriculars. The award amounts vary but can be up to half the cost of tuition.

While there may be other scholarships available as well, these are some of the more prominent programs. You should note that most of these scholarships do not require a separate application; rather, your application for admission is used to automatically consider you for merit-based scholarships. However, some scholarships (like the Coronat Scholars Program) do require additional material or essays, so be sure to read the official scholarship page on Syracuse University's website for any specific details.

Keep in mind that scholarship details may change over time, so it's essential to stay up-to-date on Syracuse University's official information. Good luck with your application!
