Founded in 2012, the Benedictine Scholars program is a group of undergraduate student leaders, whose mission is to promote a deeper understanding of the Benedictine values and heritage that defines our institution. Each year a new cohort is added with 10 incoming first-year students. Serving as ambassadors of the Benedictine values, the scholars are chosen for their commitment to leadership, service and promoting the common good.
The Benedictine Scholars program stresses the importance of:
Living a balanced life
Generosity of Spirit
"Being a scholar, I would say it’s like having your own little family on campus. These are the first 10 people you meet and you’ll always be there for one another. Being a scholar definitely made the experience at Saint Martin’s a very friendly one." — Gerardo Rodriguez '17, Everett, WA, mathematics
