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.

If you have been invited to apply for this prestigious scholarship, please register via the registration tab below. Of note, students attending Benedictine Scholars Day are welcome to bring one to two family members.
