How does MU benefit from scholarship aid?

This year, 22,354 students applied for approximately 1,900 freshman class places. The number of students applying to Marquette provides a rich pool of talent and leadership potential. However, many students whose first choice is Marquette are lost to competing institutions that offer better scholarship packages.

When students who would thrive at Marquette cannot attend for financial reasons, much is lost — in terms of their own education and personal development and for the future of society, as well. Scholarships allow young men and women to experience Marquette's transformational education regardless of financial means.

When you support scholarship aid, you help shape each Marquette freshman class. You bring the best and brightest scholars to Marquette. You bring students with leadership qualities to Marquette. And you bring students with a mix of talents, backgrounds, perspectives and callings to Marquette. These students raise the bar for all students by creating an academically challenging and socially diverse campus.

Without financial aid, I would have never had the opportunity to build my leadershio skills and take my nonprofit to the next level and truly impact my community.

Our Vision

Our vision is to be a university where all students who aspire to a Jesuit education have access to the scholarship aid they need to make a Marquette education possible. Your commitment can make this happen.

Today’s Marquette students depend on the students of yesterday more than ever. In the past, it was possible for students to pay for most or all of their education through summer employment and part-time jobs. This is no longer the case. 

Your gift toward scholarship aid is one way you can share your Marquette experience with the next generation of scholars. Help spread the word. Give today. Give Marquette.
