Students are encouraged to complete a FAFSA at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/ to determine if they are eligible for additional funding. We also encourage students to research Non-Marian scholarship opportunities.

Scholarship opportunities for which you must apply

Scholarship opportunities may exist through your community involvements, places of employment and other organizations. If you receive a scholarship from an organization outside of Marian, be sure to notify the Office of Financial Aid in order for the scholarship(s) to be included on your financial aid award.

Some scholarships are available to high school juniors and seniors, as well as continuing college students. Here’s a handful of opportunities to get you started: Scholarship Opportunities
