Light the Way Scholarship

A New Scholarship Opportunity for Incoming Students

The deadline for the Light the Way Scholarship has passed.  Scholarship application information for the incoming class of 2018 will be posted soon.

Assumption College inspires students, faculty and staff to Light the Way. Our mission reminds us that there is a greater purpose to life and that each individual has gifts and talents to share with the world. In and outside of the classroom, Assumption students are using the incredible resources around them—people, places, opportunities—to feed their minds, grow their hearts, and pass it on.

Assumption’s new Light the Way Scholarship is awarded to incoming students who utilize their abilities to Light the Way for others. Whether it’s community service to help people in need, innovation to improve society, or volunteering to heal our planet, this scholarship recognizes and supports students who positively impact the world in their own meaningful way.

Each year, Assumption College will award up to fifty $24,000 scholarships, renewable all four years.*
