Magnificat Academic Scholarships are renewable annually assuming a student maintains a 3.5 GPA and remains in good disciplinary standing.

Magnificat Alumnae Scholarship
The Alumnae Association annually awards one $2,500 scholarship to an incoming freshman that she will retain for four years, provided she maintains a 3.5 GPA and remains in good disciplinary standing. The scholarships are awarded to daughters and/or granddaughters of Magnificat graduates on the basis of merit, service and leadership. To be considered for this scholarship, the Magnificat Alumnae Scholarship Application, copies of 7th and 8th grade report cards, and a letter of recommendation from an adult who is not a family member must be received by November 28, 2014. The Alumnae Board will review the applications and select at least 3 students to be interviewed by an alumnae volunteer selection committee. The recipient of this scholarship will be notified in writing by the end of December 2014.

Donor Endowed Scholarship
Donor endowed scholarships provide opportunities for people to invest in the ministry of a Catholic education at Magnificat High School. Scholarships may be named in memory or honor of a family member, friend, or special teacher. They are an extraordinary gift, helping to fund nearly all or a portion of students' tuition each year. For this current school year, there are 143 endowments which are funding 263 scholarships, ranging from $500 to $10,000. Scholarships are awarded on a number of criteria including financial need, academic excellence and participation in service and leadership activities. Applicants must complete a PSAS application (due November 21, 2014) and a separate Donor Endowed Scholarship Application (due November 28, 2014). Scholarship recipients and donors are invited to meet and are encouraged to form relationships that may continue beyond the students' Magnificat career. Recipients will be notified in May 2015.
