Scholarships

Scholarships are awards that do not have to be repaid. A variety of scholarships, ranging in dollar amount, may be available to you. Learn more here.

Endowed scholarships 

Endowed scholarships are funded by gifts from alumni, friends and faculty of Spalding. Scholarships are awarded annually based on financial need. Award amounts and qualifications vary by scholarship, but funding is available to students across academic study. 

You can complete the Endowed Scholarship Program application on an annual basis, January through mid-March, to be considered for endowed scholarships.

Academic scholarships

To be considered for our merit-based scholarships, you only need to submit an application for admission. Scholarships awarded on the basis of academic merit are renewed automatically each year if you maintain the conditions of the scholarship.

You will be notified of your scholarship status upon your acceptance.
