Newman focuses efforts on more scholarship support to help more students


Each fall semester, prospective students and their parents make an appointment with the Financial Aid Department to determine what scholarship aid may be available as they contemplate attending Newman University. Through the generosity of many alumni, students are currently able to receive merit scholarships, need-based scholarships and assorted supplemental scholarship to offset their tuition costs.

But the need far outweighs the scholarships available. As we end our 75th Anniversary, the university plans to focus on creating new scholarships to help make a Newman education possible to all who wish to attend.

Our plan is to create new endowed and non-endowed scholarships that help underwrite our merit-based scholarships, such as the Cardinal Newman, Board of Trustees and similar scholarship programs. We also look to increase support for current endowments, and create scholarships to support minority and first generation students as well as students participating in various programs, such as athletics or fine arts.

This effort will also include new opportunities for alumni to create scholarship programs through their estate plans. This will be a critical source of giving that will help to increase our endowment fund in the future.

Creating a personal scholarship at your alma mater is the highest form of appreciation an alumnus can bestow on his or her university. If you are interested in starting your personal scholarship or a scholarship in honor/memory of a loved one, please contact the Office of Institutional Advancement
