Merit Scholarships

We are deeply committed to continuing the Sisters of Mercy’s tradition of welcoming the broadest range of students, regardless of their economic circumstances.  MGA is a community of dynamic, intelligent young women who we are preparing for lives of purpose and our enrollment must support those goals.  To that end, we have expanded our traditional financial aid program to also include merit scholarships specifically designed to attract the diverse student body that we need to be successful.

Our many scholarships are granted to students who excel in academics, exhibit leadership, demonstrate high interest in co-curricular activities and participate generously in their community. Students interested in applying for a scholarship must notify the Admission Office that they want their admission application considered for Scholarship(s) and indicate which scholarship they want to pursue.
