Eligibility

The Marianist Leadership Scholars Program (MLS) is available to students from any of the Marianist Education Consortium schools. Students from non-Marianist Schools who attended the Marianist LIFE South, Central, or Pacific programs may also apply. Students from international Marianist schools may apply but are not guaranteed acceptance into the program.

Applicants must be graduating high school seniors, applying for acceptance into the program for their first year at the University of Dayton.

What if UD offers a student a full tuition scholarship or tuition remission?

Students receiving tuition remission from a parent who is employed by UD may receive a portion of the scholarship to cover tuition costs not covered by the tuition benefit.

Application Steps

Step 1:  Online Application Form

This online form includes your contact information, and high school accomplishments and involvement. 

 The application also includes a 300 word personal essay to address the prompt:
“Explain why you want to continue your education in the Marianist tradition, and how this program might nourish your college experience.” 
This essay should help us evaluate the impact of your Marianist education and envision your involvement in a comprehensive faith, leadership, and service program. 

We suggest completing the essay offline, and then inserting the information into the online application in one sitting.  Once the application is submitted, you will not be able to make any changes.
