Like most students, Mount Saint Mary’s students rely on financial assistance whether it be federal or state aid, personal loans, or scholarships generously funded by alumnae, parents, faculty and friends of the University.

Without scholarship funds, many deserving students would not have the opportunity to pursue their dreams of a college education, a meaningful career, and a chance at a bright, successful future.

In academic year 2017-2018, our students received significant support from private, foundation and corporate funded scholarships. From 243 expendable and endowed scholarships 397 students received a total of 587 awards in the amount of $2.9 million. We are deeply grateful for the generous support provided by our MSMU community.

Student Spotlight

“I will use this scholarship to continue to work hard in school and achieve my goals. I believe in myself, but this scholarship represents to me that others believe in me, too. Thank you for making my Mount education possible - because of you, I am unstoppable.”

Dana Blakney, class of 2020, is taking full advantage of the opportunities and student programs offered at Mount Saint Mary’s.

Dana has found numerous activities to become involved with, including the Student Government Association, the Phi Alpha Delta law fraternity, Moot Court, Mock Trial, the African American Council of Women, and the Leadership Scholars Program. Through her experiences with these campus organizations she has gained a great deal, from navigating novel situations to learning alongside a diverse group of people. And because of these experiences, she’s developed self-confidence and learned how to work well with others.

At LA’s only women’s University, Dana has obtained the tools she needs to advance as a leader. After graduating from Mount Saint Mary’s, she plans to attend law school and practice as an attorney.
