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 an additional scholarship that requires a separate application: the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur scholarship.

Catholic High School Graduate Award
This $5,000 annual scholarship is given to graduates of Catholic high schools who enroll at Emmanuel College. The award recognizes a student's commitment to academics and service made throughout high school. No additional scholarship application is required but students must apply by February 15. Students are notified of their award upon admission to the College.


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.
