Scholarship Month at Regis University

Scholarship Month

We know students like you don’t settle for anything less than greatness. That's why we've dedicated an entire month to celebrating our scholarship opportunities and recognizing top scholars from our incoming class of first-year students. Throughout the whole month of February 2023, we'll be awarding scholarships that range from $1,500 up to full tuition.

Scholarship Month includes two on-campus scholarship competition weekends, as well as additional scholarship opportunities which do not include an in-person component. We'll send scholarship information and opportunities to all admitted students. All scholarships awarded during Scholarship Month are four-year awards, renewable based on a 3.0 GPA, and may be used toward an approved one-semester study abroad program. Eligibility for each scholarship varies, so be sure to review the details carefully.

2023 In-Person Scholarship Competitions

Join us on February 10-11, 2023, and/or February 17-18, 2023, for our in-person Scholarship Month competitions. You may participate in one competition per weekend but not the same competition twice. For example, you may choose to compete as a Leadership Scholar the first weekend and a Science and Math Scholar on the second weekend.

Friday: Admissions Open House
Friday's agenda consists of admissions sessions in an open-house format. Topics include financial aid and affordability, first-generation student support, on-campus housing and more. Participation in this portion of the weekend is mandatory. All participants should plan to arrive on campus no later than 1 p.m. MT.

Saturday: Competition Day
The competition portion of the weekend is on Saturday. Check-in times begin at 7:30 a.m. MT, depending on the chosen competition area, and all events will conclude by 12:15 p.m. MT. Some competitions require essay, exam and/or video submissions before, during and after the weekend has concluded. Be sure to carefully review the requirements for each scholarship competition in which you’re competing.
