Scholarship Awards/Grants 2017- 2018
Mercyhurst Prep is committed to keeping the costs of education affordable. Our aim is to make our quality education accessible to as many students as possible. In addition to the Diocesan Tuition Assistance Program, MPS offers a variety of financial alternatives. Eligibility for most forms of aid is based on need. Scholarships are granted in the areas of academics, arts, activities, and leadership.
Applicant must be the child/stepchild, grandchild or great-grandchild of a Mercyhurst Seminary/Preparatory School graduate. Only students entering ninth grade may apply. The number and amounts of each alumni scholarship vary but all are renewable each year provided the Laker maintains a B average and good conduct.
The Catherine McAuley Scholarship
The Catherine McAuley Scholarship, in memory of Msgr. John R. Snyder, is offered to incoming freshman currently attending a Catholic feeder school. The student must submit a one page essay (typed-double spaced) on why their Catholic education is so important to them. The one-time $1,000 scholarship will be based on the essay with consideration given to those in financial need. The essay should be returned with your scholarship application by March 1, 2017.
