$1,000 Scholarship Opportunity (NEW!)

Thanks to the support from the Vice President for Institutional Equity & Diversity, the newest cohort of MARTIAL Eagles will have the opportunity to earn a $1,000 sophomore-year scholarship.  All 2020 MARTIAL Eagles who complete the first-year program will have their scholarship disbursed during the 2021-2022 academic year.  This financial award is available for up to 25 young men in this living learning community program.
