Our student-centered and generous award program is administered according to a student's academic record as well as the family's financial profile. All awards are available for four years to students who maintain full-time undergraduate status and the required cumulative grade point average for renewal each year.
St. Bonaventure University’s merit-based awards are awarded on the basis of your three year cumulative high school average (freshman through junior year) and SAT or ACT scores. The best combined effort of the Critical Reading (previously called Verbal) and Math portions of the SAT, or the ACT score, whichever is higher, will be used for award consideration for freshmen.
These scholarships are available to entering freshmen with commendable academic achievement. A student should have a 81 high school average and a 950 or better combined SAT (or 20 ACT).
The award amount is $12,000 ($9,000 St. Bona Achievement Scholarship/$3,000 St. Bona Achievement Resident Award - students must reside in campus housing with housing charges to receive the "resident" component of the award). It is renewable annually, in the same amount, provided that a 2.5 or better cumulative grade point average is maintained. Please visit our Net Price Calculator and input your high school average and SAT or ACT score to view your estimated award.
This scholarship is available for freshmen and transfer students who have graduated from a high school or currently reside in one of the following counties: Cattaraugus (NY), Chautauqua (NY) or Allegany (NY). This award is in addition to any other academic award received.
The award amount is $2,500. It is renewable annually, in the same amount, provided that a 2.0 or better cumulative grade point average is maintained.

The award amount will be $2,500 and is renewable annually, in the same amount, provided that a 2.0 or better cumulative grade point average is maintained.
An award will be given to all students who graduate from a high school outside of New York state except those who graduate from high schools in Ohio (those students already receive the Buckeye Award and do not qualify for the Geographic Diversity award). This award is in addition to any other academic award received.
The St. Bonaventure University Sibling Grant is available to students if two or more siblings from the same immediate family are concurrently registered as full-time undergraduate students in the same semester. The grant is for $250 per semester of concurrent enrollment (or $500 max per student per year). This grant does not apply to graduate students. This grant is not applicable if a student is receiving a grant, scholarship or award that covers full tuition.
The St. Bonaventure University Incentive Grant is available to students who have submitted the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) before February 15 and who have not qualified for any other merit award. This grant can be combined with the Southern Tier Scholarship, Buckeye, and Geographic Diversity awards. This grant does not apply to graduate students.
Complete an application for Special Scholarships for SBU freshmen, transfers and returning students. All freshman awards require full-time attendance. Generally, a student cannot receive a freshman award from more than one of the categories listed above. Students who receive ROTC, Tuition Exchange, and Tuition Remission do not qualify for these awards. Athletics scholarships may also affect the Southern Tier Scholarship, Buckeye, and Geographic Diversity Awards available to student-athletes. Students enrolling in the SBU-GW Dual Admit Program in Medicine do not qualify for the Geographic Diversity Award.
