A scholarship is a form of gift assistance that does not have to be repaid. Scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis to students of high academic ability who enroll full-time in an eligible college and are awarded by Marquette and private organizations.
Marquette offers a wide variety of merit scholarships to freshman and transfer students that support the university's mission while recognizing student achievement — excellence in and out of the classroom, commitment to community service, and demonstrated leadership.
Important note: Please be aware that Marquette scholarships are intended to cover tuition expenses only. Therefore, if you receive a full-tuition scholarship from another source (ROTC or any outside organization, etc.), you are no longer eligible for the Marquette scholarship. Likewise, if you receive scholarship aid from all sources (including private scholarships) exceeding your cost of education, your Marquette scholarship will be reduced.
