Saint Benedict's and Saint John's believe in recognizing students for demonstrated academic, leadership and service achievements. Scholarships are available to eligible applicants based solely on achievement and not on financial need. These scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis at the point of admission. All scholarships awarded by the College and University are given for an academic year and are credited to the student's account in equal portions (one-half) each semester. A student who is enrolled for only one semester is eligible for only one-half of the annual award. Scholarships are renewable each year (unless otherwise noted) as long as the student maintains satisfactory academic progress.
