It is expected that these students will also embody the well-rounded approach to life that Saint Vincent College seeks to further develop in its students.
The competition offers a top prize of a full tuition, room and board scholarship. Second through fifth place winners receive a full tuition scholarship. The competition is comprised of an exam that includes subject matter in English, Mathematics and general knowledge. Prospective students must complete the exam on campus in a set period of time on the exam date.
