Catholic Foundation Scholarship Fund

University of Saint Francis President Rev. Dr. Eric Albert Zimmer created the Catholic Foundation Scholarship Fund as part of an ongoing commitment to heightening our Catholic identity. USF seeks to produce more opportunities for devoted Catholic students to pursue their higher education at a university that values and encourages their faith. By doing so, USF will always be a place where Catholicism thrives in its students.

Catholic Foundation Scholarships will be awarded to students who:

  • Seek a higher education at a university dedicated to its Catholic foundation
  • Receive endorsement from their parish priest
  • Demonstrate a desire to explore and deepen their Catholic faith
  • Embed Franciscan values into their lives and careers

Scholarship recipients receive:

  • A high-quality liberal arts education with a 97% career success rate
  • An inclusive community encouraging faith development through daily Mass, student retreats, and other campus ministries
  • Access to a personal connection with a full-time residential chaplain
  • Ample opportunities for service, leadership, and travel
