Merit Scholarships

Spring Applicants

Although the majority of our students apply for a fall start, many students apply to start in the spring semester. Whether you took a semester off to travel, work or are transferring from another college, Emmanuel College will review your spring application for merit-based scholarships.

Students who earn Emmanuel College merit scholarships and non-need-based awards are notified by the Office of Admissions in their acceptance packets. These awards include the Presidential Scholarship, Dean's Scholarship, Academic Achievement Scholarship and City of Boston Scholarship. The scholarship letter included with the acceptance packet provides scholarship details including amounts and renewal requirements.

All students who complete the admission application before the published application deadline are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships. No separate application is required for most scholarships.

Emmanuel offers an additional scholarship that requires a separate application. The Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur Scholarship—a $2,500 award—is given to students who are recommended by the founding order of Emmanuel College. Recommendation form for this scholarship is available through the Office of Admissions and are due by February 15th.

Scholarships are mutually exclusive; however, students receiving scholarships or awards may also be considered for need-based financial aid, including federal, state and Emmanuel College grants and loans.
