|Celebrate St. Joseph!|
On this feast day of St. Joseph, patron of our college, we celebrate his steadfast faith in and devotion to what was asked of him. The same persistence and dedication are echoed in our college motto: "She conquers who conquers herself."
We rejoice in our alumnae who, time after time, dedicate themselves to serve their families and communities, comfort the sick, educate the young and lead others to accomplish worthwhile goals. We are all actively sustaining the legacy handed down more than two centuries ago by St. Elizabeth Ann Seton.
St. Joseph College Alumnae Scholarship at MSM Established
As we announced to you on Mother Seton's feast day in January, we have established the St. Joseph College Alumnae Scholarship at Mount St. Mary's University so that the influence and spirit of St. Joseph College will live on in Emmitsburg for years to come. The scholarship will be awarded to a rising or transfer junior or senior based on financial need and academic merit. First preference, however, would be given to a student with a relationship or meaningful connection to a St. Joseph College alumna.
The financial aid provided will be 5% of the principal in the fund. The first award will be made in 2015, or eighteen months after the scholarship fund has reached $50,000 with gifts from St. Joseph College Alumnae, their families and friends. The SJC Alumnae Association will provide initial funding of $35,000.
Support Our Legacy Gift!
We ask for your support as we begin with a starting goal of $50,000. This amount will enable us to make the first award in 2015 and help your Alumnae Association sustain the legacy begun and fostered in St. Joseph's Valley.
Donations may be made online by credit card or sent by check to the St. Joseph College Alumnae Office at the address listed below. Please make your check payable to SJCAA and indicate the donation is for the Scholarship Fund.
