Throughout our history, St. Mary’s Academy honors its founding commitment to provide a quality, college-preparatory Catholic education to young women regardless of their family’s financial ability to pay full tuition.  St. Mary’s annual and endowed scholarships provide vital resources to ensure all young women can access and benefit from a St. Mary’s Academy education.

Today, 41 percent of students receive some financial aid and in 2014-2015 St. Mary’s is providing almost $1.6 million in tuition assistance.  Annual and endowed scholarships provide critical resources to help meet this need.

Many of our existing scholarships are named to honor individuals or families, or to memorialize deceased alumnae and friends. Any endowed or annual scholarship may be named according to the donor's wishes.

Contact St. Mary's Director of Annual Giving, Ronecca Norvell, at (503) 721-7720 to learn more about establishing a scholarship.


Criteria for Both Annual and Endowed Scholarships
St. Mary's development staff works in conjunction with donors to establish criteria for awarding scholarships. Some criteria to consider includes:

  • Financial need, as qualified through the tuition assistance program
  • Minimum grade point average for eligibility and renewal;
  • Renewed to the same student for a series of years or disbursed to a different student each year;
  • Awarded for excellence in a particular discipline or area, such as Science, Math or English.
