Student Scholarships and Access
Each year, Santa Clara competes with other top universities to recruit a community of exceptional students. Unfortunately, many of the most talented students choose other institutions due in large part to financial aid offerings. In 2019 alone, 63.6% of Santa Clara students had an average of $16,439 in unmet need once all financial aid and scholarships had been applied.
Making a Santa Clara University education affordable is important to our mission as a Jesuit institution and vital to the growth of our national reputation. With the help of our donors supporting scholarship funds, we can help high-achieving students earn their degree regardless of their ability to pay.
