Regis University has announced its Dare to Reimagine scholarship campaign to offer multiple options to students to help cover tuition costs.
Beginning with applications for the incoming class starting in fall 2023, Regis University’s Strategic Enrollment Management team has redesigned the financial aid packaging for traditional students to be more aligned with the University’s Jesuit Catholic mission and values.
“At Regis, we place high importance for students to have access to a top-ranked private Catholic institution within their home state at an affordable tuition,” said Dr. Senthil Kumar, Vice President for Strategic Enrollment Management.
The Dare to Reimagine scholarship campaign includes the newly unveiled Tuition Advantage program which recognizes high-achieving students throughout the state of Colorado who demonstrate financial need. For in-state students with a 3.8 GPA or higher whose families earn a total adjusted gross income of less than $50,000 per year (based on 2021 tax returns), the program will cover the student’s full tuition after institutional, state and federal funds are applied — this represents an estimated four-year value of up to $170,000. Regis has also expanded its Merit Scholarships, granting awards which range from $21,000 to $27,000 to students who demonstrate exceptional academic ability. In addition to these larger scholarships, Regis has introduced a number of stackable awards and micro-scholarships as part of a student’s total annual aid package, including:
1) Catholic Promise Scholarship ($2,000): For students who have graduated from a Catholic high school.
2) St. John Francis Regis Scholarship ($1,000): For students who have graduated from a Jesuit Catholic high school.
3) D2R Club Sports Scholarship ($1,000): For students who join or are recruited to play for Regis club sports teams, including rugby, soccer, cheer, volleyball and cycling.
4) Ranger Award ($1,000): For students who complete their application to Regis University and submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) before March 1.
5) Admitted Student Visit Award (Fly-in/Drive-in Award) ($500/$1,000): For students who have been admitted and attends an in-person admitted student event. Colorado- based students will receive $500, while out-of-state students will receive $1,000.
“As the only Jesuit Catholic University in the Rocky Mountains, we’re proud to provide high school seniors across the globe with a unique opportunity to continue their education at one of the top-ranked national universities according to U.S. News & World Report,” Kumar said.
