Marquette offers a wide variety of merit scholarships that support the university's mission while recognizing student achievement — excellence in and out of the classroom, commitment to community service, and demonstrated leadership. A scholarship is a form of gift assistance that does not have to be repaid. Marquette and private organizations award scholarships on a competitive basis to students who enroll full time in an eligible college.

Financial aid

Scholarships are one component of a student financial aid package. For optimum financial aid consideration be sure to file the FAFSA ( We STRONGLY recommend completing the FAFSA and submitting it to the federal processor (with income estimates if necessary) by February 15 to make the March 1 priority deadline for consideration of all financial assistance. It is far more important to file early with estimated amounts than to wait to file until your taxes are complete.
