Regis University Scholarships

At Regis University, we believe in investing in your future. That's why we offer a variety of scholarships to reward student’s academic performance, leadership potential and other factors. And the best part is that these scholarships are considered gifts and don’t need to be repaid! 

Regis scholarships are awarded for the fall and spring semesters, for full-time students only. They can be combined with other types of financial aid, but will not exceed the total cost of tuition.

We encourage students to review the current scholarship options below.

Please note that merit awards are based on the student profile at the time of admission to Regis University and may be based on residency status, high school attended or other criteria. The maximum merit and stackable award total for a student, including visit awards, is $36,000.

Private Scholarships

Students may find scholarships through outside databases including, but not limited to:

How Private Scholarships May Affect Your Aid: Your financial aid eligibility is limited by your cost of attendance and/or your financial need. If you receive additional aid, such as a grant, scholarship or tuition benefit from outside of Regis University, we will first apply these funds to any unmet financial need, if applicable. However, if you have not applied for need-based aid, then these awards are applied to your account and are limited by your cost of attendance. If the private scholarship(s) causes you to go over your demonstrated financial need and/or cost of attendance, we may have to adjust your aid offer. We will reduce student loans first, then work-study, before reducing any Regis University scholarships or grants. In some cases, however, additional outside awards that must pay toward tuition charges may result in the reduction of a Regis University scholarship or grant.
