Mount Saint Mary College offers scholarships based on the merit
of a student's academic achievements and full-time (12+

academic semesters in total. Students must maintain good academic
standing and full-time status to receive the scholarship.
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

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.
