  • It is impossible to quantify the true value of a Saint Vincent education.

    A cost cannot be placed on the Benedictine values instilled in each graduate, the sense of social responsibility built through participation in service projects, the critical thinking skills developed through a rigorous liberal arts curriculum, or the memories made during Founders' Day with the Saint Vincent community.

    More than 90 percent of Saint Vincent College students who apply for financial aid — and 100 percent of the freshman class — receive some sort of support.  Saint Vincent recognizes academic achievement with a scholarship matrix that rewards high-achieving students with renewable scholarships ranging from $15,000 to $19,000 per year, and encourages alumni to recommend students who are Saint Vincent College material, earning them a $1,000 Alumni Grant that is renewable all four years.

    A significant portion of this support is made possible through gifts to endowed scholarships from alumni and friends of Saint Vincent College. In establishing or supporting one of the College’s more than 200 endowed scholarships, you are ensuring that future Bearcats will have the opportunity to attend this exceptional institution and will not have to bear the entire burden of their education upon graduation. Since its inception in 1846, Saint Vincent has consistently provided financial assistance to students. Many graduates have chosen to pay the College back through the establishment of a scholarship because they understand the significant impact a scholarship can make.

    An endowed scholarship, providing support in perpetuity, is a great way to honor a family member or friend and to leave your own legacy at Saint Vincent College.
