Are you a Benedictine Scholar?
Each year, ten first-year students are selected to serve as
Benedictine Scholars. These students are among the most academically
proficient, selfless, motivated leaders at Saint Martin’s University. As
Benedictine Scholars they serve the Saint Martin’s community, articulate and
support values established by the centuries-old Rule of Saint Benedict, and
receive an additional $40,000 in scholarships during their four years as an
undergraduate student. All candidates who interview but are not selected
will receive an additional $4,000 in candidate scholarships over four years.
Candidates will interview for the scholarship either during
Benedictine Scholars Day on March 22, 2014, or by way of a phone
interview. Please register via the registration tab below.
