Scholarships are awards granted to students to help pay for academic pursuits beyond high school. Each scholarship has its own application criterion and process, deadline, and selection committee or path. Scholarships are gifts to the selected students, and are not intended to be paid back to the gifting agencies.
Every college and university governs its own scholarship programs. Interested students must reach out directly to target institutions, though the Marian Counseling Department and Athletic Department, if applicable, are happy to guide and assist students in this process.
Likewise, the Marian Counseling Department seeks to aid students in discovering applicable scholarships but does not assume responsibility for the scholarship process. Each student must govern his or her own scholarship application process and is ultimately responsible for this important task.
A list of available scholarships can be found in Naviance, in the “colleges” tab under “scholarship list” in the Scholarships and Money section.

How do I pursue participation in collegiate athletics?
The process and timeline for participation in collegiate athletics are established by the NCAA, including Divisions I, II, and III schools. The registrar at Marian High School coordinates with Marian’s Athletic Director to assist student athletes in this process. Students interested in pursuing an athletic career while attending college should meet with both the registrar and the athletic director for guidance.
