Alumni Association Scholarship

This award has been established by the StFX Alumni Association to provide a one time award for students entering their first year of undergraduate study at StFX.

Value: A non renewable scholarship award of $2,000 will be granted. 

Eligibility: The criteria for this scholarship shall consider a balance of the following two factors:
  •  Scholastic achievement. Students must demonstrate scholastic achievement while in high school. Applicants must submit a high school transcript to demonstrate scholastic achievement.
  • Extracurricular activity. Extracurricular activity is defined as activity that is undertaken outside the classroom. Such activity includes, but is not limited to, the following:
    •  Involvement in sports, whether offered by the school or the community-at-large
    • Involvement in school-sponsored activities such as societies, clubs and non-sports teams
    • Involvement in community stewardship activities such as volunteering for a not-for profit group
    • A full-time or part-time job in which leadership skills are developed

Each applicant must include at least one (1) letter of reference from a StFX graduate as part of his/her scholarship application. The Alumni reference letter will outline how the scholarship applicant demonstrates the values that are important to the StFX Alumni Association. The Alumni reference letter can be received from a StFX graduate who knows the candidate and is recommending him/her. Where possible, the applicant should solicit the Alumni reference letter from outside his/her family (e.g., parents, siblings, aunts/uncles, cousins, grandparents).

In addition to the Alumni letter of reference, students must provide at least one (1) letter of reference that supports his or her application. These letters of reference will speak to the student’s achievements both scholastically and in extra-curricular activity.
