The fund is aimed at providing financial assistance to Saint Mary’s College students with verified financial need, who have excelled in academics and are active volunteers in student or civic organizations. The fund is committed to ensuring that qualifying students are not deprived of the full benefit of an education as a result of limited financial resources.
