Sr. Ann Edward Scanlon Scholarship

Friday, December 6th, 2019

I simply want to give a shout-out to The College of St. Scholastica for offering small—but consequential—scholarships to those students who need them  and look for them. When I first moved to the US 6 years ago I was told scholarships were much more attainable than in my home country. I had trouble believing it at first, for I applied to several without success, but as I built my resume and continued trying, I was pleased to see that it was true. Thank you St. Scholastica for awarding me the Sr. Ann Edward Scanlon Scholarship!

Psi Chi Scholarship

Wednesday, December 4th, 2019

Psi Chi is an international Honor Society in Psychology that offers scholarships for various reasons. One of such reasons is traveling expenses for conferences. This upcoming February I will be presenting research at the Society for Personality and Social Psychology in New Orleans. In hopes of easing the toll the expenses associated with this trip will have on my finances, I have applied to the Psi Chi Unrestricted Travel Grant. To be eligible you must be a member, which wouldn’t have been possible for me if The College of St. Scholastica didn’t have a ‘chapter’ of Psi Chi on campus (not every school has it). I am still waiting to hear back them, but I hope I get it!

Another Research Poster Presentation!

Thursday, April 25th, 2019

It is looks great for your in your CV, and it is even better for public speaking practice. This time, the Poster Presentation happened at CSS for Scholarship and Creative Arts Week (SCAW). It was not only for upper classmen research poster presentations, though–there were freshmen presenting dignitas projects and sophomores who partook in the TRIO Scholarship program presenting their first research as well. I often forget how many initiatives are active and resources offered on campus, but today reminded me of how eclectic and plentiful they are!

Financial Aid

Monday, April 15th, 2019

A good reason to love St. Scholastica is the financial packages they offer. As an international student (or in other words, someone who is foreign to the idea of having to pay astronomical sums of money for your education), financial aid is a significant consideration when deciding where to go to college. In this aspect, Scholastica excels. Not only are the benedictine scholarships they offer upon admission generous–there are also many smaller grants to which you can apply as an undergraduate throughout your years in the college. For instance, the Ryan Rothstein Scholarship is aimed at students experiencing financial hardship, while the Sister Ann Edward Scanlon Memorial Scholarship provides funding to academically strong students (also experiencing some degree of financial struggle) who best uphold the love of learning Sister Ann Edward Scanlon exemplified throughout her life. In all, the many financial opportunities offered  by St. Scholastica are pretty representative of the hospitality and stewardship it tries to inculcate in its students!
