The inaugural Saint Francis Scholarship Competition is being held on the University of Saint Francis campus where qualified high school seniors are invited to compete for top scholarships and to learn more about our academics through engagement with USF faculty and staff.


Saint Francis will award renewable full-tuition scholarships to two students, $28,000 scholarships to 10 students and $1,000 scholarships to all other competitors. All awardees will also carry the honor of being named Saint Francis Scholars, signifying academic commitment and excellence.


Event dates: Students invited to the scholarship competition must attend on one of two dates at the Achatz Hall of Science and John and Toni Murray Research. Next event date:

  • Feb. 17, 2024, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Scholarship Competition Day will consist of two breakout sessions: group interviews with faculty and staff and an essay competition. Finalists will be announced after the event, and the winners will be announced at the end of February, following the second scholarship competition date.
