Mount Scholarships

The Mount has announced exciting new scholarship increases and a new scholarship!

Academic Scholarships for incoming freshmen (2014-2015)

Mount Saint Mary College offers scholarships based on the merit of a student's academic achievements and full-time (12+ credits/semester) traditional attendance. We award scholarships upon acceptance, and they are renewable for three years, or eight academic semesters in total. Students must maintain good academic standing and full-time status to receive the scholarship.

*When determining the scholarship, we use the highest of your critical reading and math SAT scores or your highest ACT composite scores, if you took the test more than once.

You may be eligible for additional grants and scholarships based on need, rather than academic qualifications. Be sure to include the Mount's Title IV school code, 002778, on your FAFSA, and you will automatically be evaluated for all need-based funds that the Mount has to offer.

Leadership Scholarships are awarded to matriculating, full-time freshmen who have demonstrated leadership abilities through high school and community experiences. Award recipients will be required to engage in a co-curricular, campus experience in exchange for the leadership scholarship, which can be up to $2,500 per academic year. These campus experiences may include student newspaper, yearbook, radio station, pep band, event marketing, and student government. All leadership experiences, with the exception of athletic ability or participation, will be considered. 

Donor Scholarships

Mount Saint Mary College offers a number of private scholarships each year. The Admissions application and FAFSA are used to determine eligible recipients based upon criterion established by the donor. Read more about Donor Scholarships

Need-Based Grants

These institutional grants are awarded on a competitive basis and may reflect academic excellence, as well as demonstrated financial need. The level of grant assistance depends upon the quality of the student’s academic record, the amount of financial need, the availability of funds, and full-time traditional enrollment. Renewal requires students to continue to demonstrate financial need, as defined by the FAFSA each year, and maintain good academic standing.
