Today’s St. John’s University students are not too different that they were when the University first opened its doors in 1970. Many of them are still the first in their families to go to college, and they still rely on scholarship support to realize their dreams of a quality college education. Our donors help them to achieve their goals.
As St. John’s continues to fulfill its mission of assisting students with financial challenges – more than 97% of our undergraduate students receive some form of financial aid much of it from the University’s own funds – your support is needed to help them succeed.
You can help deserving students pay for college by establishing and endowed or expendable scholarship. An endowed scholarship is established with a minimum of $50,000 which is invested. Interest accrued is then awarded annually to students who meet the scholarship criteria. An expendable scholarship is established with a minimum of $5,000. Those funds are then awarded to students who meet the scholarship criteria.
