Applicants must have completed at least one complete semester of their freshman year at Gettysburg College at time of application, and plan to matriculate for their sophomore, junior or senior year at Gettysburg College. This scholarship is not available to students entering their freshman year at Gettysburg College.

This scholarship is also available to students who are or will be attending Penn State Dickinson Law in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. See the Seidel Family Scholarship Fund (Penn State Dickinson Law) application, if applicable.

All applicants must have lived in Berks County for at least two consecutive years during their secondary school years.

Scholarships will be awarded based on all-around qualified candidates, not primarily on grades alone, with a preference to Penn State Dickinson Law applicants over Gettysburg applicants.
