Where to Give

Scholarships

Help students pursue their dream of a St. John’s education.

When St. John’s opened its doors in 1870, the Vincentian founders challenged the University to provide a Catholic higher education for all students, regardless of means.

To ensure the strength of the Vincentian mission at a time of growing need, St. John’s has launched the Partners for Student Success Scholarship Initiative. The goal is to increase the University’s Scholarship Endowment Funds by raising $15 million over five years. Through this effort, generous alumni and friends make a lasting impact by creating named scholarship endowments.

This important new initiative will culminate in 2020—the year of the University’s 150th Anniversary celebration.

Endowed scholarship applications are being accepted for students applying for consideration for the current academic year. You must have the completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file for the year in which you are applying for endowed scholarship. Applicants for endowed scholarships must be in good academic and judicial standing.  Apply here by completing the general scholarship application.

How it Works

A New Way to Make a Difference

Through the Partners for Student Success Scholarship Program, generous alumni and friends can establish a permanent endowment with an outright gift of $100,000 or more, or a pledge of $100,000 or greater (payable over three to five years). The University will reinvest the gift for four years, increasing its earning power.

In addition, St. John’s will match five percent, six percent, or seven percent of the total pledge or gift depending on the number of years taken to pay the full amount. The match will provide student awards while the donor’s gifts generate interest.

Serving New Generations

A Source of Opportunity

St. John’s remains committed to serving all deserving students, including those from financially strapped families. For example,

  • More than one-third of the annual operating budget supports student assistance;
  • In 2016, 96 percent of undergraduates received $497 million in aid;
  • In addition, the University froze tuition and fees at its Staten Island campus for the 2015–16 academic year.

Yet rising costs present new challenges for many working and middle-class students—especially those who are the first in their families to attend college. At St. John’s, about 40 percent of entering freshmen in 2016 received federal Pell Grants for highest need.

The Partners for Student Success Scholarship Program will help new generations of entering freshmen to meet the costs associated with a St. John’s education.

Three Plans for Funding an Endowment

Donors establish endowments that provide permanent scholarship assistance for the growing number of entering freshmen with high financial need. There are three options for creating an endowment:

Endowing a scholarship is a unique and memorable way to recognize a loved one or someone who has made a significant difference in your life.  The minimum funding level for an endowed scholarship is $50,000, which can be established through a one-time gift or by making a pledge to the University.

Once you have reached the minimum funding level, you will receive an annual report from the Office of Donor Relations detailing the status of your scholarship and the scholarship recipients.  You will also receive letters of thanks from your recipients annually.

Criteria

Many donors choose to leave the scholarships “unrestricted”, meaning the University has flexibility in awarding the endowment to students with the greatest financial need.  You may also choose to focus your endowment in a particular school or field of study, such as your college and/or major.  Criteria are broadly defined to assure that scholarships are awarded annually.  Here are a few ways to establish criteria:

  • By level (freshman, sophomore, junior, senior)
  • By grade point average (e.g., minimum G.P.A.  of 3.0)
  • By school (e.g., St. John’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, The Peter J. Tobin College of Business, etc.)
  • By major (e.g., English, math, finance, accounting)
  • By program participation (e.g., global studies, athletics)

Award process

Scholarship recipients are selected by the University’s Office of Financial Aid based on need and/or scholastic achievement and according to the donor’s wishes as stipulated in the Scholarship Agreement.

Naming your Scholarship

You may also choose to name your endowed funds for yourself or in honor or memory of a loved one.  Each grantor is asked to provide a brief bio on themselves and/or the person for whom the scholarship is named.  It helps to ensure the future recipients will be able to know the Grantor’s wishes.

Donors who establish scholarships impact the lives of students and help to secure the future of St. John’s!

An expendable scholarship (award fund) can be established with a minimum of $5,000.  The fund does not accrue interest and can only be awarded based upon the available balance.  For example, an expendable scholarship with a balance of $5,000 could provide up to $5,000 in assistance.

Criteria

Expendable scholarships may include a number of criteria, however please keep in mind that the more broadly defined the criteria is, the easier it is to award.  Here are a few ways to establish criteria:

  • By level (freshman, sophomore, junior, senior)
  • By grade point average (e.g., minimum G.P.A.  of 3.0)
  • By school (e.g., St. John’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, The Peter J. Tobin College of Business, etc.)
  • By major (e.g., English, math, finance, accounting)
  • By program participation (e.g., global studies, athletics)

Award Process

Scholarship recipients are selected by the University’s Office of Financial Aid based on need and/or scholastic achievement and according to the donor’s wishes as stipulated in the Scholarship Agreement.

Naming your Scholarship

You may also choose to name your endowed funds for yourself or in honor or memory of a loved one.  Each grantor is asked to provide a brief bio on themselves and/or the person for whom the scholarship is named.  It helps to ensure the future recipients will be able to know the Grantor’s wishes.

Donors who establish scholarships impact the lives of students and help to secure the future of St. John’s!

What sort of information do donors like to hear?
