The Centennial Campaign: Scholarships

There are numerous ways that you can support the University of St. Francis

Student support is the highest priority of the university. Throughout USF’s 100-year history, we have welcomed students based on their talent and academic potential. By raising $1 million in new scholarship support by 2020, the University of St. Francis Centennial Campaign demonstrates USF’s commitment to affordable excellence and will ensure a USF education remains within reach of bright, hard-working students and families. USF is emphasizing two scholarship support areas that are critical to the university’s recruitment success and the overall quality of USF’s student body.

NEED-BASED SCHOLARSHIPS
While 96 percent (1,240 out of 1,291) of traditional, full-time undergraduate students receive some form of financial assistance and 40 percent (520 out of 1,291) of traditional, full-time undergraduate students qualify for Federal Pell Grants, the university is only able to meet a fraction of the growing student financial need that exists. This is the university’s greatest need.

MERIT-BASED SCHOLARSHIPS
USF aims to strengthen its ability to attract the best and brightest students from Illinois, the region and the country through competitive scholarship support.
