The admission application is used to automatically determine merit scholarship eligibility; no additional application is required. Applicants are notified of their award in their acceptance letter. Scholarships are awarded based on the student’s academic ability, college, and program of study. Changes in college, program, and/or term may impact scholarship eligibility.

Full-time students who are awarded the scholarship must take a minimum of nine credits per fall and spring semesters. Part-time students must take a minimum of six credits per fall and spring semester to be considered eligible. International students must take a minimum of nine credits per fall and spring semester for eligibility.

Funding is limited; therefore, timing of application submission will be considered. Students are encouraged to apply early.

Award Amount
Awards range from $2,500 to $6,500 per academic year depending on college, program, number of credits taken, and academic standing, though those noted with an asterisk (*) above range up to full tuition.

  • Scholarships are not applicable to winter session, post-session, or summer sessions.
  • Scholarship recipients may not receive any other form of institutionally funded assistance, including teaching, research, and graduate assistantships; tuition remission benefits; and any other college-specific aid.
  • The University reserves the right to adjust any University grant or scholarship due to receipt of non-university aid. In addition, the combination of external grants and scholarships (funded by state, federal, and/or private sources) along with financial assistance from St. John’s, may not exceed the cost of full tuition.

It is renewable for up to three years of continuous graduate study in the same college and academic program for which the scholarship was originally awarded. A minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 is required. The University will review the academic progress of students receiving the scholarship each year. Students are no longer eligible for the scholarship if their cumulative GPA drops below the required 3.0.
