Presidential Scholarship Program

February 17, 2014


Congratulations on qualifying for this prestigious award at Fontbonne University!  The purpose of your involvement in this process is to provide our faculty and staff with a deeper understanding of your academic strengths, extracurricular involvement, and anticipated contributions to Fontbonne University.

We would like to invite you and up to two guests to attend this special day.  In addition to the individual interviews, you will learn more about Fontbonne University’s academic environment, leadership opportunities, and our Honors Program.  The program will conclude with a reception in your honor with Fontbonne University’s President, Dr. Dennis Golden.

Also, if this is your first time to Saint Louis, we encourage you to explore the wonderful city that surrounds our campus over the weekend prior!  Your admission counselor can provide more information about hotel discounts and great local sights. 

Please note that attendance for the entirety of the program is required to be considered to receive the Presidential Scholarship.  Contact your Admission Counselor with any specific questions. 

Interview Tips

The interview format will consist of each student participating in two 20 minute interviews.  One interview will be held with a faculty member and the other with a staff member.  In each interview, you will be asked a variety of questions that will help us learn more about your academic achievements, leadership skills, and ability to apply your strengths to Fontbonne University’s mission to serving a world in need.  To best prepare for the interviews, identify specific examples of your academic accomplishments, leadership and service experiences, reasons for pursuing higher education, and overall strengths of your character.  Please dress professionally.
