Hoyas for Science Scholarship

BGE strives for diversity, equity, and inclusion. The “Hoyas for Science” merit scholarship program advances this aim by rewarding applicants whose experience, when evaluated holistically, suggests they are uniquely able to enrich the BGE community. This scholarship awards 20% of tuition costs for one academic year to newly-admitted students.

Ignatian Hoya Biomedical Academic Scholarship

Georgetown University is the nation’s oldest Catholic and Jesuit university. Drawing upon the 450-year-old legacy of Jesuit education, we provide students with a world-class learning experience focused on educating the whole person through exposure to different faiths, cultures, and beliefs. The Ignatian Hoya Biomedical Academic Scholarship awards 20% of tuition costs for one academic year to newly-admitted students who represent the Ignatian ideals in their personal accomplishments.

Jesuit Volunteer Corps Service Scholarship

BGE aims to challenge our students to engage in the world and become men and women in the service of others. Therefore, BGE is partnering with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps in having a Jesuit Volunteer Corps Scholarship. The scholarship awards individuals who have served at least 1 year in the Jesuit Volunteer Corps a 20% tuition scholarship each semester.

Segal AmeriCorps Education Award

BGE is proud to foster a culture of service among our students and alumni. We are pleased to announce that we are an education partner with the Segal AmeriCorps Education Award. Starting Fall 2019, recipients of the full-time Segal AmeriCorps Education Award will receive a 100% matching scholarship in the first semester the student is enrolled.

The Federal Academic Alliance Scholarship

The Federal Academic Alliance scholarship awards 15% of tuition costs each semester to eligible federal employees across the country as part of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management’s effort to address critical skills gaps in mission critical occupations. 

“Finally, the university’s location within the Washington, D.C., area provides a competitive advantage for individuals transitioning into the federal government workforce.”
