You know what a powerful intellectual and social resource our Catholic schools are — for America and the world.

Catholic and Vincentian, St. John’s University exemplifies this tradition, offering students an acclaimed education that builds the knowledge, skills and confidence to become ethical leaders for our global society. To further develop our commitment to preparing Catholic students for ethical leadership, St. John's offers Catholic scholarship opportunities.

Catholic Scholars Program
Catholic Scholars take part in a four-year developmental program that translates faith into action. Prospective freshmen apply for this scholarship, and if chosen will receive a grant of $5,000 per year which will be awarded for four years of study.  Students will commit themselves to faith-based leadership training, service and prayer, and formation of a deeper understanding of what it means to be a leader inspired by the Catholic tradition. Catholic Scholars assume important leadership roles within the community of faith and service at St. John's University in preparation for becoming faith-inspired Catholic leaders for life. PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING EXCLUSIONS: Students entering a house of discernment sponsored by a diocese or religious community, or a college seminary or religious community formation program are ineligible to participate in the Catholic Scholars Program at St. John’s University. The deadline for this scholarship has passed​. See more details »
