On Monday, October 30, Mount St. Mary President Karen Flake and Principal Angie Collins met with Hendrix College President Bill Tsutsui and members of the Office for Diversity and Inclusion to discuss the Hendrix Aspire Scholarship program available to Mount St. Mary students. Mount St. Mary signed on with Hendrix in 2015 as one of the original program partners to provide students with the opportunity for a top-class liberal arts and sciences education.
The Aspire Scholarship program covers up to the full cost of attendance (tuition, fees, on-campus housing and meals, and other expenses) for Federal Pell Grant-eligible students from partner secondary schools and organizations. Recipients of the Aspire Scholarship are also given support to encourage academic achievement and engage them in activities to advance their vocational interests.
Students interested in the Hendrix Aspire Scholarship will need to complete the FAFSA and the Hendrix admission application by the November Early Action I deadline of November 15. For information, please contact the MSM Counselors Office.
