St. Gregory’s University Freezes Tuition, Offers New Scholarship for Oklahoma Students

St.Gregory’s University in Shawnee, Okla., has announced plans to make Catholic higher education more financially accessible to Catholic families in the 2014-15 academic year.

The University will not raise tuition costs for the third straight year and a new Pastoral Scholarship Program will award 50 fully funded, four year financial aid packages to students nominated by their parish priest in Oklahoma.  Additionally, every Catholic student from an Oklahoma parish who attends St. Gregory's will now receive a scholarship of $3,000 per year rather than the $1,000 granted in previous years, according to the University.

"As Oklahoma's only Catholic college, we are deeply committed to extending a Benedictine welcome to more students who may be successful here, regardless of family means," D. Gregory Main, President of St. Gregory's University, said. "This new program is part of our ongoing initiative to reach out to students who may not otherwise be able to attend college, or a Catholic university, without this assistance."

"We were pleased to be able to increase this scholarship three-fold thanks to the generous giving of families across the state, who have responded generously to the appeals of the Monks at Sunday Masses," Main said.
