Marymount has several opportunities for special or designated gifts that directly impact the experience of our girls. One of the most critical initiatives is our Named Scholarship Program, which directly supports individual girls throughout their four years at Marymount. In 2014-2015, roughly $1.5 million was awarded in need-based assistance impacting 1 in 4 of our girls.
Within the framework of the financial aid program there are several established relationships with foundations and individuals who have designated significant gifts to support Named Scholarships. The Named Scholars Program enables Marymount to assure families that a scholarship designation will remain with a student throughout her years at Marymount provided her financial need remains, and that she upholds the general criteria established for her designated scholarship award.
