The St. Mary’s University Alumni Association takes great pride in supporting access to higher education through the Alumni Association Scholarship Program. Currently, the Alumni Association provides scholarship assistance to 15 to 20 incoming students, for a total of 70 undergraduate students. Scholarship funds are made possible through money raised during the annual Fiesta Oyster Bake, Oysters & Pearls Scholarship Gala, the Annual Golf Tournament and the generosity of alumni.


1. Must be a current graduating high school senior and/or incoming freshmen that has had no previous university or community college enrollment after high school graduation.
2. Must be nominated by a verifiable St. Mary’s University alum.
3. Must be accepted to St. Mary’s University as an undergraduate student for the upcoming academic year.

Transfer students are not eligible to apply. Students who took dual credit, IB, or AP courses while in high school are welcome to apply.


The deadline for the 2020-2021 academic year is February 1, 2021. Late submissions will not be considered.


At this time we only accept nominations from verifiable St. Mary’s University alumni. As a result of the recommendation, the Alumni Association will fund the student’s application fee. If the student is selected, he or she will receive a call from a committee member and will need to make a decision by May 1, 2021.

For more information about the Alumni Scholar Referral Program, please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at 800-699-9932 or 210-436-3324.

*Please note that submission of a name does not guarantee the student any scholarship funds. Students are only placed in consideration for scholarship funds.
