Scholarship Competitions

You and your family are invited to campus for a two-for-one deal: Learn more about Marquette during a visit, and compete for a scholarship while you're here. Each of Marquette's seven colleges sponsor an open house and scholarship competition. Review the college exam details below for more information.

  • Each exam is available only on the date listed for each college. Unfortunately, there are no early exams or make-up exams offered.
  • Winners are selected solely on the test results from the day of the competition. Winners must initially enroll in the college sponsoring the examination.
  • These scholarship awards can be combined with the Ignatius Scholarship Awards, but awards may not exceed tuition. For additional program details about this award, review the applicable Award Information Guide, available from the Office of Student Financial Aid.

General event details

Additional event details will be posted in December 2014.
