Saint Thomas Aquinas Scholarship

Saint Thomas Aquinas Scholarship

The College's namesake, St. Albert the Great, had a particularly well known student: St. Thomas Aquinas, who believed that service to one's community was of utmost importance. "Everyone," he wrote, "acts on the supposition that what he does will contribute to his overall good; one's overall good is the ultimate reason for doing anything… Thus in one sense there is one and the same ultimate end for every human agent —the integral human good." Albertus Magnus College is honored to offer a scholarship for students who show promise as active members of their community.

The St. Thomas Aquinas Scholarship is a $10,000 reduction in tuition to students who have a documented history of exemplary community service while in high school, with a minimum of 200 total hours, and a 2.7 cumulative G.P.A. This scholarship is renewable annually, provided the student maintains a 2.5 cumulative G.P.A.
