Hruby Scholarship for Leadership and Service
The Hruby Scholarships are available to students enrolling for the first time in their current program or to students who have had at least a 2 year break since last attending Aquinas. Applications are available in the Office of Graduate Studies, School of Education, Advising Office, Office of Adult Student Recruitment, and Financial Aid Office. Applications are due in June for the following fall semester and are due in December for the following spring semester.
Alpha Sigma Lambda Scholarship (Continuing Education Students Only)

Alpha Sigma Lambda (ASL) is an honor society which partners with colleges and universities to celebrate the scholarship and leadership of undergraduate adult learners in higher education. Because Aquinas has an ASL chapter on campus, Aquinas Continuing Education Students who plan to attend Aquinas during the 2015 fall and 2016 spring semesters and who meet certain criteria are eligible to apply. Application forms will be available online and in the Financial Aid Office in late January 2015.

Master of Management Alumni Scholarship (Graduate Students Only)
Thanks to generous MM Alumni donations, Aquinas College will be offering partial tuition scholarships for students in the Masters of Management program starting in the 2011-2012 academic year.
