Presidential Catholic Scholarship
The Regis Presidential Catholic Scholarship is a prestigious full-tuition award that is offered to a select number of incoming students each year. Recipients are chosen by the Presidential Catholic Scholarship Committee based on their involvement in high school, academic performance and their potential to create a positive impact in their community and the world around them.

Expectations of the Presidential Catholic Scholars
The Presidential Catholic Scholars Program is founded in the Catholic heritage of Regis. As such, we expect recipients of the Presidental Catholic Scholarship to grow each year by fulfilling each tenet through their academic and co-curricular involvement.
Fulfillment of Scholarship Expectations
At the conclusion of each academic year, recipients will be expected to present a portfolio demonstrating how they have fulfilled each of the scholarship tenets. This is an opportunity for recipients to demonstrate their growth in the ideals of Regis and to receive feedback for their leadership development. Regis believes this reflection is a critical component of the Regis experience and what will ensue will be a mutually enriching conversation about what it means to be a leader at Regis, and subsequently in the world for the common good.
