Named Scholarships

For over 120 years, generations of alumni, parents and friends have supported our school’s tradition of excellence by giving the gift of scholarship. We are inspired daily by the wonderful generosity of so many members of our community, all of whom place great trust in Molloy to nurture and empower the leaders of tomorrow. It all begins with you. Your support keeps the Molloy experience affordable and accessible for many students and families. Since 2003, your generosity has allowed over 500 Named Scholarships to be offered and accepted by outstanding students. These scholarships account for roughly a quarter of a student’s total tuition over a 4-year period. Receiving a Named Scholarship can make the difference for a family seeking to enroll their child or children at Molloy. Our Named Scholarships represent many members of the Stanner Family: Faculty, Marist Brothers, Alumni, Parents, and Heroes fallen in the line of duty. Just as every Stanner has a story, so too do the individuals who have Named Scholarships established in their honor.
In order to be considered for a Named Scholarship, please complete our Named Scholarship Application Form and submit it with a one page scholarship essay. You can download the form by clicking the link below.
