Père Marquette Awards

All applicants to Marquette are considered for the Père Marquette Award program. These awards are competitive and determined by reviewing all information provided by an applicant as well as the overall applicant pool. In determining an Père Marquette Award, the committee reviews a student’s academic work, rigor of curriculum, community service, leadership, and other factors.

Historically, freshman applicants who have excelled in the classroom and performed well on standardized examinations, and those who can make a unique contribution to the university community, have received awards from Marquette.

Transfer applicants are reviewed based upon a combination of college and high school performance, as well as leadership and service activities.

This award is renewable each semester of a recipient's four-year (eight-semester) undergraduate program provided the recipient remains in good academic standing with his or her respective college. For additional program details about this award, review the applicable Award Information Guide, available from the Office of Student Financial Aid.
