Endowed Scholarships

The University of Saint Francis has many donors who generously provide endowed scholarships for undergraduate students with varying criteria. The amounts and number of each scholarship vary year to year based on funds made available from the endowment. These scholarships are awarded based on criteria established by each donor and applied to tuition and fees.

The general endowed scholarship application is closed for the 2018-2019 academic year and will be available again January 1st for the 2019-2020 academic year.
