A college education remains a wise investment and a person's best opportunity to successfully compete in the job market. Plans, dreams and educational goals can be realized because financial aid for college is readily available and we're here to help.
Last year, St. Thomas students received more than $2,000,000 in private scholarships awarded by local foundations, agencies, corporations, and other groups that provide financial support to students. And, at St. Thomas the funds students earn in private scholarships go directly to reduce their tuition bill as we do not reduce our St. Thomas funding to students based on such awards.
St. Thomas provides this monthly e-newsletter to help you find out about additional scholarship opportunities. It is truly worth a student's time to search for these scholarships.
