The Thomas S. Monaghan Founder’s Scholarship Program (FSP) is designed to form students who are grounded in the Catholic Faith and equipped to become active leaders in the campus and culture, to foster a fuller participation in the great tradition of a Catholic liberal arts education. More than simply a scholarship, the program will place students within a cohort of peers and provide opportunities for growth by introducing them to professors and staff leaders who will serve as mentors. Students will also participate in planned programs and activities that are meant to help them grow in their understanding and ability to live out and share the Catholic Faith in their daily lives. These include weekly meals, required reading, and participation in campus events.
