Philosophy and Religious Studies Scholarships

The Philosophy and Religious Studies Department at Saint Xavier University provides students with an environment for developing and enhancing writing, reading, and information-literacy skills. Students majoring or minoring in philosophy or religious studies are a valuable part of the SXU community as they possess an ability for critical thinking, thoughtful engagement with historical and current questions about the common good, as well as dedication to the spirit of life-long learning. Saint Xavier is interested in retaining and rewarding the students of the philosophy and religious studies discipline through financial aid.

Saint Xavier offers a wide range of scholarships available to students University-wide and to students who fall into certain parameters like a specific major or academic year. There are a variety of other scholarships are also offered outside of Saint Xavier, which we call outside scholarships, that you may be eligible to receive based on the establishment's requirements. For more information concerning these scholarships and their application details, please visit the scholarship directory.
