Scholarships at Saint Mary


USM was founded in the belief that students should be admitted based on their academic talents—not the depths of their pockets.

To that end, the university awards a number of academic scholarships to high school graduates and transfer students who demonstrate a high level of accomplishment and potential. Many recipients are selected on the basis of high school and college records and ACT or SAT scores. Some scholarships require demonstration of leadership and service. They are awarded on a one-year basis and are renewable.

Scholarships available at Saint Mary include:

Other aid, in the form of state and federal grants and student employment, is also available.
Students will be given consideration for the following academic awards upon completion of the admission application, with the exception of the Jubilee Scholarship. The Jubilee award has special application requirements. Contact USM Admissions via email or at 913-682-5151 with any questions.
