Bellarmine University / Financial Aid / Outside Scholarships

Outside Scholarships

Bellarmine's Office of Financial Aid often receives notices about outside scholarships from organizations, businesses and groups. These awards support students with special interests or characteristics such as a specific field of study or occupation/career, individuals from a particular nationality or race/ethnic group, church affiliation, or special skills and talents. Students must meet the sponsor's criteria in order to receive a private scholarship. The criteria may or may not include having demonstrated financial need. We also encourage you to conduct scholarship searches on your own by visiting the popular Internet scholarship search engine FastWeb.
