The Provider Scholarship for transfer students

College of St. Joseph is furthering its mission and addressing national concern over the rising cost of higher education with the Provider Scholarship Program. The scholarship for full-time undergraduate students incorporates a commitment to academic excellence, personal and professional growth, and community service.

Students must remain in good academic standing, participate in one campus activity and one community service event each semester, and take college experience courses to develop a common bond. The program fosters personal leadership skills, civic responsibility and community service, while providing students of all income levels an education they can afford.

Residential transfer students in the program receive a $14,500 scholarship in year one, $15,500 scholarship in year two, and a $16,500 scholarship in year three, so long as they meet the obligations of the program. In addition to the scholarship award, the cost of room, board and tuition are locked in through those remaining years at CSJ.

Commuter transfer students (excluding students in the ACCEL program) in the program receive a $6,000 scholarship in year one, $7,000 scholarship in year two, and a $8,000 scholarship in year three, so long as they meet the obligations of the program. In addition to the scholarship award, the cost of tuition is locked in through those remaining years at CSJ.

Transferring students with a GPA of 2.5 to 4.0 are eligible to apply for the Provider Scholarship.
