Scholarships, Grants & Awards

Villanova University's Programs

Villanova University has a comprehensive scholarship program. Each year our program awards scholarships to a number of deserving students. Recipients of three University-sponsored scholarship programs are monitored by the Center for Access, Success and Achievement: 

The Presidential Scholarships for Underrepresented Students

The Center for Access, Success and Achievement chairs the selection committee for the Presidential Scholarships for Underrepresented Students. The scholarships are offered to a select group of entering students, traditionally talented students are provided with tuition, room and board and books. Information about the scholarship, along with the application, is provided below. It can also be obtained from the Center for Access, Success and Achievement or the University's Admission Office.

St. Martin de Porres Grants

The St. Martin de Porres Grant is also offered to a select group of traditionally underrepresented students who are high school seniors from the Greater Philadelphia area. The grants, developed for current tuition and fees, are renewable annually. St. Martin de Porres Grants are awarded through the Admission Office. Information about the grant can be obtained from the University's Admission Office.

Goizueta Foundation Scholars Fund

The Goizueta Foundation Scholars Fund has been instituted for the purpose of providing need-based scholarship assistance to Hispanic/Latino students whose families currently reside in the United States. This award valued at 12,500 annually (for eight consecutive semesters) will be granted to an entering freshman who is of Hispanic or Latino origin and has demonstrated outstanding academic achievement and financial need. Candidates should have an exemplary high school record and correspondingly high SAT or ACT scores. In addition to this award, returning undergraduate students will be considered for scholarship funding through this program on the basis of their academic performance and financial need. More Info

Women of Color Scholarship

Villanova University's Women of Color Scholarship provides needed scholarship funds to underrepresented female students who exemplify the ideals and the true spirit of Villanova Universty through their strong academic performance, involvment, and service. Since it's establishment in 2002, more than 23 scholarships have been awarded to some phenomenal and deserving young women. In order to continue this important work, the scholarship committee solicits your support at our annual Women of Color Scholarship Luncheon.

St. Thomas of Villanova Scholars

The St. Thomas of Villanova Scholars (STOVS) program is a three-week summer program where invited incoming freshmen begin their college career. During STOVS, students have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with college level courses, connect with University faculty and administrators, and meet some of their new best friends.
