Deadline for scholarship applications extended to April 30

It’s scholarship season at Salve Regina, and the Office of Advancement is offering a dozen scholarships ranging from $500 to $5,000. The deadline to apply for these scholarships was recently extended to Tuesday, April 30.

Salve Regina continues to add scholarship opportunities for students. In recent years, a number of new funds have been established by alumni, parents and friends that recognize achievement and provide financial assistance to qualifying students in various majors and areas of interest.

“We are extending the deadline for scholarship applications to allow students more time to prepare their applications and faculty and staff the opportunity to recommend students for scholarships,” said Victoria Duclos, senior director of advancement operations and programs. “These special scholarships are awarded as tuition credit for the fall semester, and student recipients are recognized at the annual Fall Festival Awards Ceremony scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 28.”
