High Achievers Scholarship

The purpose of the High Achievers Scholarship is to provide support to Graduate students who have financial need and to support Bellarmine's goal of promoting a diverse student body, which is key to its educational mission. Each applicant’s qualifications will be considered on an individual basis. As part of this process, consideration will be given to the applicant’s socioeconomic group, educational background and/or status as a member of an underrepresented group, so long as this consideration is in keeping with the goal of obtaining the educational benefits of diversity. 

If at any time the selection criteria of the scholarship become contrary to law or University policy, as determined at the discretion of the University, the University may modify these criteria as necessary, while keeping them as closely aligned as possible with the selection criteria described above.

Bellarmine University admits qualified students of any age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, disability, color, religion, and national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, disability, color, religion, or national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school administered programs.
