As part of its mission to support students through scholarships and financial aid, Marianopolis offers over 120 scholarships and bursaries each year, ranging from a few hundred dollars each to full tuition. Many of the major entrance scholarships are renewable into a student’s second year. The College also offers scholarships exclusively for returning students.

Funded by The Marianopolis Millennium Foundation, scholarships are awarded according to established criteria and cannot exceed that year’s tuition amount. Children of Marianopolis employees are not eligible for any financial aid, as they do not pay tuition.
