Scholarships

Scholarships from the University of Providence are the primary source of funding used to assist students with meeting their educational costs.

Many university scholarship funds originate as gifts from individuals and corporations. We offer scholarships in several different ways.

Types of Scholarships

Institutional Scholarships

Merit and Athletic scholarships are the primary scholarship funding used to lower the cost of your education. Our generous merit and athletic scholarships range from $11,000-full ride.

Merit Scholarships

All undergraduate students who are not being recruited by an athletic coach are considered for merit scholarships upon their acceptance into the University of Providence. Merit scholarship amounts for freshmen are determined by each student’s high school academic performance.

Transfer students are evaluated for merit scholarships based on previous academic performance. 

Awards are renewable each year as long as a student remains full time status and continues to make satisfactory academic progress.

Athletic Scholarships

Athletic scholarships are determined by the coach of each sports team and take the place of a merit scholarship on a financial aid offer.

Endowed Scholarships

General, Endowed, and Annual scholarships are available to undergraduate students in addition to merit and athletic scholarships – up to the cost of tuition. Once every year a scholarship application is opened for students to apply for these scholarships. The application process opens in the winter and closes early spring with award notifications going out shortly after for the following school year.

The current application is now open for the 2021-2022 academic year! The deadline to apply is March 15, 2021.
