The unprecedented global health and economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic has caused this to be a very difficult academic year. However, given the current economic situation and the new challenges facing us all, there has never been a better time to stay in school. When economic conditions improve, employers will be seeking highly-skilled talent that can make a difference. With an advanced degree from Marymount, you will be more marketable and ready for your future career.
For these reasons, we are offering additional incentives to you, our graduating seniors and alumni, to continue your education at Marymount towards in-demand degrees that will help you help the world.
The Saints Grant Program is available to all degree seeking or non-degree seeking alumni and graduating seniors who register for graduate coursework in the Spring 2021 semester by December 4th and have a qualifying 2.8 or higher GPA.
The grant provides up to a total of $6,000 towards your graduate degree or certificate at Marymount.
A $3,000 Saints Grant will be offered to all May and December 2020 graduates from Marymount who have achieved a cumulative GPA at or above 2.8, and all Marymount alumni with comparable academic standing who are not currently enrolled in graduate coursework at the University. To take advantage of this grant, eligible graduates and alumni must register for graduate coursework for the Spring 2021 semester by December 4, 2020.
Saints Grant recipients who begin their studies in the Spring of 2021 and choose to pursue a Marymount master’s degree will be offered an additional $3,000 Saints Grant, which would be credited in the last semester of their academic program prior to graduation.
All graduate programs are eligible for Saints Grants except for Nursing, Counseling, Physical Therapy and Forensic & Legal Psychology.
**Students that are receiving an institutional award or external scholarship that is already covering the full cost of attendance are not eligible to receive the Saints Grant.
