Merit scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic achievement to full-time, first-year and transfer students seeking degrees. Students are notified of their eligibility by the Office of Admission at the time of their acceptance. The designation of a merit scholarship remains in effect for up to four years of undergraduate study, provided the student maintains the minimum renewal requirements.

Renewal of all merit awards is contingent upon full-time undergraduate enrollment and achievement of specific cumulative GPA requirements.

  • Hannah C. Bradley Endowed Scholarship Fund

    The Hannah C. Bradley Endowed Scholarship Fund was established in 1994 by Jacalyn C. Egan, who identified the fact that non-traditional students pursuing an undergraduate degree face unique obstacles.

    Students today face many challenges: familial loss, culture shock, juggling the demands of home, family, childcare, and employment. All of these factors, coupled with a full class schedule, can be daunting. In addition, the financial restrictions and needs of undergraduate, non-traditional and or international students are defined by their unique set of circumstances. The permanently endowed Hannah C. Bradley Endowed Scholarship Fund makes awards to non-traditional undergraduate students facing unique obstacles.

Under the program, Regis can contribute up to half of any tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate, and the Veterans Administration will match the amount.
