The gift of scholarships
Scholarships are a form of gift aid that does not need to be repaid. Scholarships may be awarded for academic excellence, to recognize and encourage development or for extraordinary academic or athletic talent. The aid may be provided by the College, by generous private donors or by other sources.
Presentation College has received generous designated funds from friends, alumni, and businesses with the purpose of establishing scholarships. Scholarships are awarded by academic merit and financial need. (April 1 deadline)
Student athletic scholarships are awarded to student athletes by Presentation College coaches in compliance with the policies and procedures of the College, the North Star Athletic Association (NSAA), and the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). The amounts and number of awards may vary.
Students may receive up to $500 per semester match for competitive scholarships from outside sources. This scholarship is automatically awarded once scholarship funds are received at the college.
Contact the Financial Aid Office for full eligibility requirements.
