Carry the Conversation Forward: Establish a Named Scholarship

Through the Freeing Minds campaign, St. John’s took the bold step of cutting tuition by one-third, eliminating more than a decade of price increases.

Even with our more affordable tuition, however, the majority of St. John’s students still require financial assistance, and this need is expected to grow. Demographic statistics indicate that more students will come to St. John’s from lower-income households, and many will be the first in their families to attend college. In this environment, named scholarships help to ensure that future Johnnies won’t have to choose between a St. John’s education and an alternative that can’t quite compare.
