Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Scholarship

The Phi Theta Kappa scholarship is a merit scholarship offered to PTK members admitted as transfer students in recognition of their high academic achievement.


The Sister Thomas Welder Leadership Scholarship is an academic scholarship awarded to full-time undergraduate students based on prior academic standing. Students can receive the scholarship for a maximum of eight semesters.


The University of Mary Catholic Scholars Program is a donor-funded effort providing a scholarship equivalent to free room and board for eligible graduates of Catholic high schools. It is offered to first-time, full-time freshmen.

The Catholic Scholars Program is designed to help make a Catholic college education readily accessible. Since this program can't be combined with any other institutional aid, such as scholarships, many students (including those eligible for this program) may qualify for even more substantial aid based on merit and need.
