Marianist Leadership Scholars Program

A passion for service.
Behaviors that reveal a sense of global community.
The courage and commitment to support and challenge society’s values.

These characteristics are central to our Catholic, Marianist identity.

The Marianist Leadership Scholars Program (MLS) was created by the United States Province of the Society of Mary as an opportunity for graduates of Marianist Education Consortium schools to continue to grow and develop within the Marianist tradition. 

Members of the Marianist Leadership Scholars Program are challenged and supported in connecting academics with service and leadership in the greater community. 

This four-year faith, service, and leadership program, which includes a renewable scholarship of $4,000 per year, is available to those graduates who have demonstrated both an understanding and a practice of the Marianist story.
