St. Pope John Paul II Scholarship

New scholarship offers incoming students the opportunity to earn up to full tuition.

With the aid of generous benefactors, Franciscan University of Steubenville is offering a scholarship to provide significant financial aid for new students considering Franciscan from the Dioceses of Greensburg, Altoona-Johnstown, Erie, and Pittsburgh.

“We are so pleased that generous benefactors from Western Pennsylvania have made the St. Pope John Paul II Scholarship available to our neighbors in that region.”

– Franciscan University President Father Dave Pivonka, TOR

The scholarship fund gives priority to high school and transfer students in Western Pennsylvania dioceses; however, students in other dioceses within Pennsylvania, who meet the criteria, will also be considered should there be remaining funds available.

Named for a saint dear to the benefactors’ hearts, the St. Pope John Paul II Scholarship is available for incoming students who meet the required qualifications.

Qualifications

  • Graduate with a 3.0 or better from an accredited Catholic high school or homeschool program within the Dioceses of Greensburg, Altoona-Johnstown, Erie, and Pittsburgh
  • Demonstrate financial need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the Franciscan University Financial Aid Office

Additionally, to remain eligible for scholarship funding in subsequent years, recipients must maintain a 3.0 GPA at Franciscan and actively participate in at least one Catholic faith-based activity.
