How to Apply

MSA students are eligible for the following scholarships when they meet the priority admission application deadline. When you apply by this deadline, you will automatically be considered for any eligible scholarships. 

Scholarship Terms and Conditions

  • Scholarships are awarded based on the grade point average (GPA) of the last 60 units earned by the student as determined at the time of admission.
  • Scholarships are renewable for up to two additional years beyond the first year of award, provided the student continues to meet the terms and conditions.
  • Students must complete all courses attempted (grades of I, F, UF, and W do not represent a completed course).

  • Students must maintain continuous enrollment at Dominican. If a student stops out or takes a Leave of Absence for more than one term, they are no longer eligible for the scholarship.
