Saint Clare Academic Scholarship
The Saint Clare Academic Scholarship is named after Saint Clare of Assisi, who modeled a simple lifestyle rooted in service and prayer. She was committed to protecting the integrity of each person and also emphasized the thoughtful stewardship of all material resources. Saint Clare’s teachings are reflected in Marian University’s Franciscan values of dignity of the individual, peace and justice, reconciliation, and responsible stewardship, which are informed by prayer.
Marian University awards the Saint Clare Academic scholarship to new full-time and transfer students. The amount of the award varies up to half-tuition, based on prior academic achievement, demonstrated leadership, and ability to contribute as a student to Marian University. The scholarship is renewable for up to seven semesters by enrolling full-time and maintaining a university GPA of a 3.00 or higher.
To be considered, applicants must meet the following criteria:
- Freshmen: Hold a minimum high school GPA of 3.25 and earn minimum test scores of 1100 on the SAT (Critical Reading and Math portions) or 24 on the ACT
- Transfers: Hold a minimum college GPA of a 3.00
- International Students: Hold a minimum GPA of a 3.25 and submit a personal statement
