Admissions + Aid

Merit Scholarships

Students who earn Emmanuel College merit scholarships and non-need-based awards are notified by the Office of Admissions in their acceptance packets. These awards include the Presidential Scholarship, Dean's Scholarship, Academic Achievement Scholarship and City of Boston Scholarship. The scholarship letter included with the acceptance packet provides scholarship details including amounts and renewal requirements.

In addition to merit-based scholarships, Emmanuel College offers the Saints Community Award to recognize the many ways we believe students will be a valuable addition to the Emmanuel community. Financial need is not considered when determining eligibility for this award and students are notified with the acceptance packet.

All students who complete the admission application by the published application deadline are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships. No separate application is required for most scholarships.

Emmanuel offers two additional, mutually exclusive, scholarships that do require a separate application: the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur scholarship and the Friends of Emmanuel College scholarship.

Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur Scholarship
This $2,500 scholarship is given to students recommended by members of the founding order of Emmanuel College. To be considered for this scholarship, you must submit a completed recommendation form from a Sister of Notre Dame de Namur. To apply for this scholarship, download the form here. 

Friends of Emmanuel College Scholarship
The extended Emmanuel family represents loyal and dedicated people throughout the United States and abroad. Eligibility for this $2,500 scholarship is given to those with a nomination from an alumnus or current faculty or staff member of the College. To apply for this scholarship, download the form here.  

Recommendation forms for both of these scholarships are due by February 15, 2014 for the Fall 2014 semester. 

Scholarships are mutually exclusive; however students receiving scholarships or awards may also be considered for need-based financial aid including federal, state and Emmanuel College grants and loans.
