Since 2006, the University of Mary has allowed graduates of Bismarck-Mandan high schools to have free room and board on campus while attending as first-time freshmen. The Catholic Scholars program expands the offer to graduates of Catholic high schools.
Kaspari said the program “is a natural outgrowth of both the University of Mary’s commitment to making an excellent education accessible to worthy students, regardless of their economic situation, and its Christian, Catholic and Benedictine identity.”
The 51-year-old school has nearly 3,000 students from 23 countries and 41 states. Undergraduate tuition for full-time students is $6,400 a semester.
