For many years, St. Francis has maintained a generous scholarship program, offering awards ranging from nearly full tuition to incentive awards that cover the four-year cycle of a full-time undergraduate education. These awards are granted to students of high achievement who show promise of academic success at the college level. The College has recently expanded these scholarships opportunities and increased the amounts awarded to high school seniors starting at St. Francis College in September.
