Hopes and Dreams Scholarship

Hopes and Dreams Scholarship

For disadvantaged students, the bachelor and licentia degrees in religious studies are a lifeline to new opportunities, but in spite of our low tuition, for some of them, our program is a luxury they cannot afford and also an opportunity they cannot afford to miss! Our Hopes and Dreams Scholarship Fund, aims at providing access to higher education to religious sisters.

These scholarships are possible thanks to the generosity of donors who take particular care about the preparation of religious women.

These scholarships are intended for female students who belong to a religious community that would like to provide them with higher education but who, due to the many economic difficulties they face at the moment, cannot afford to enroll them at the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum.
