Habemus Papam! $1 Million in New Scholarship Fund to Celebrate

by Thomas More College on March 14, 2013

In honor of the Church’s first New World pontiff, Thomas More College of Liberal Arts is now offering 20 new scholarships to applicants from Canada, Mexico, and Central and South America!

The Our Lady of Guadalupe Scholarship fund is currently valued at $800,000. Up to 20 scholarships will be awarded per year. Each qualified applicant will receive a 4-year full or partial tuition scholarship.

On the creation of this new fund, President William Fahey remarked, “The Conclave’s selection of Cardinal Bergoglio from Argentina is not only an honor to the New World, it is a call for Catholics in the New World to find new forms of solidarity and new means for supporting the Church’s mission in all our lands.”

In January of last year, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI said regarding education,

Education is the most interesting and difficult adventure in life. Educating – from the Latin educere – means leading young people to move beyond themselves and introducing them to reality, towards a fullness that leads to growth . . . It calls for responsibility on the part of the learners, who must be open to being led to the knowledge of reality, and on the part of educators, who must be ready to give of themselves.

For over thirty years Thomas More College has been committed to the mission of educating young men and women in the Truth.

The College is recognized as one of the finest undergraduate “great books” programs in North America.  Most recently the American Council of Trustees and Alumni ranked its curriculum amongst the top 2% of over 1,000 surveyed.

First Things has hailed Thomas More College as among the top 10 “most Catholic” undergraduate institutions in the United States.   The College has been endorsed by Cardinals Arinze, Burke, and Egan.  Scores of public intellectuals and scholars have praised its rigorous course of studies and wholesome student life.

In addition to upholding academic rigor and faithful Catholicism, the College has created an interesting fusion of a traditional New England College with a universal Catholic outlook. All sophomores study in Rome.  A study center in Oxford, England is maintained.  Each student has opportunities for internships with such groups as Aleteia Catholic news agency and Sophia Institute.

Over the past few years, the College has had numerous international students from countries around the world including Canada, Mexico, France, Ireland, and Belgium. Through the Our Lady of Guadalupe Scholarship, Thomas More College looks forward to seeing these numbers increase even further.

“Young people who are passionate about their Faith and wishing to be formed, mind and soul, according to the Truth, should without a doubt apply to Thomas More College of Liberal Arts.”

-Liam Mitchell, Class of 2014, Ireland
