Siena College Equity Scholarships

Siena College is committed to supporting families in need and we offer a range of Equity Scholarships to assist with tuition fees. Equity Scholarships are offered to students at all year levels and are awarded for the duration of a student’s time at the school, if needed. Applications for Equity Scholarships are treated in the strictest confidence. Siena College continues its legacy of providing a learning environment strongly committed to nurturing a grounded, innovative and holistic education for young women that prepares them to take their place in adulthood as significant agents of change, and prepares them to become responsible global citizens. Through our rich Catholic heritage and dynamic Dominican tradition, students are grounded in Gospel values by providing them with:

  • Tools of study where they develop frontiers of critical thinking, continually seeking truth in its various manifestations
  • Community and interdependence
  • Prayer, leading them to the right relationship with God, with others and our sacred earth, and
  • Active, compassionate service

Strongly rooted in the Dominican pillar of Justice, students develop an understanding that, with the privilege of their education, comes responsibility. They extend their voices, addressing human injustice wherever it is compromised, as did St Catherine of Siena, the patron of Siena College.

Students grow to become ardent truth seekers and bearers of hope. With Veritas as the College motto, they seek to interface near and far with the heart and eyes of God, celebrating and embracing diversity, inclusion and deeply respecting the dignity of all, embracing the challenges that this entails in a multicultural, multi religious, as well as secular society.

Why Offer Equity Scholarships?

Through the Siena College Equity Scholarship Program, we will provide strong educational opportunities for girls from socially and economically diverse backgrounds. The benefits will reach far beyond each recipient’s Siena education. The scholarships categories offered are for:

  • A current or future student
  • A refugee or Indigenous student
  • A daughter/grandaughter of an alumna
