Each year our students earn private scholarships. This past year, our students received just over $2,000,000 in private scholarships awarded by local foundations, community agencies, clubs, social and fraternal organizations, parents’ employers and other groups that provide financial support to students. These scholarships are awarded based on a variety of factors like financial need and/or academic achievement, ethnic or racial heritage, community involvement, leadership, career plans and fields of study. It is truly worth a student’s time to search for these scholarships.
$cholartips is designed to help St. Thomas students in their efforts to find and apply for scholarships that are sponsored by outside organizations and agencies. It is updated each month during the school year and you can also review the $cholartips archives to link to additional opportunities from previous months.
$cholartips goes further to provide you with additional website resources including free scholarship search sites such as FastWeb, Get Ready for College, Scholarship Experts, and scholarship tips. These links provide additional scholarship advice and scholarship opportunities to you.
Remember, at St. Thomas, we offer you a comprehensive approach to scholarships and financial aid.
