Saint Leo University Dare to Roar Scholarship Program
Saint Leo University is devoted to helping all those who dream of greater things, gain the competence and courage to be more. And now we’re taking big, bold steps to make it practical for students to receive a quality, private university education. This includes our decision to freeze tuition for the 2021-2022 school year at $23,990 and increase our scholarship offerings.
Here’s an overview of some of our newly imagined scholarships and programs. To learn more, please visit www.saintleo.edu/dare-to-roar
- Tuition Advantage Program - For Florida students with a 3.5 GPA, our newest program will cover full tuition if their family income is less than $50,000 a year (Adjusted Gross Income on 2019 tax return). Students must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and be determined to be Florida Residents by Saint Leo’s Student Financial Services Office to qualify.
- Dare to Roar Associate Degree Program - For less than $10,000 a year, earning an associate degree from one of the largest, private Catholic universities in the United States is now affordable. For many Florida and out-of-state students, it's possible to attain a private education from Saint Leo University at no out-of-pocket cost. High school students with a GPA of 2.00 - 2.39 will qualify.
- Catholic Promise Award - The stackable scholarship awards $3,000 per year for students working toward a bachelor’s degree. To be eligible, high school seniors must be U.S. citizens, graduate from a Catholic high school within the United States, and attend University Campus.
- Global Citizen Award - The award provides a stackable award of $3,000 per year for international students working towards a bachelor's degree. This award can be combined with academic scholarships, totaling up to a maximum of $17,000 per year. Limited Global Citizen Awards are available and are considered based on their application to Saint Leo.
- Merit Scholarship Program - Students are automatically considered for our newly designed merit scholarship program once they apply to Saint Leo University. No separate application is required! Freshman students with a GPA of 2.3 and above qualify for merit scholarships between $10,000 – $14,000 per year.
- Microscholarship Program –Students can earn up to $1,000 in additional funding for their first year at University Campus.

1 for 2 Education Foundation Scholarship
The 1 for 2 Education Foundation is seeking highly motivated scholars, planning to attend or attending an accredited U.S. four year college or university, to apply for its tuition scholarships. The Foundation’s unique scholarship program employs a “pay it forward” model that encourages scholars to take responsibility for their education. Persons awarded a grant by the Foundation commit themselves to “pay it forward” by agreeing to support the education of their fellow scholars.
For the 2019 – 2020 and 2020 – 2021 academic years, the Foundation granted a diverse group of students up to $25,000 each to attend both public and private colleges and universities across the United States. Students awarded scholarships came from both public and private high schools in a variety of different states.
For the 2021 – 2022 academic year, the Foundation intends to award between two and ten merit-based scholarships. The size of each grant is determined on the basis of tuition remaining after consideration of all other forms of tuition assistance obtained by the scholar.
THE 1 FOR 2 PLEDGE
Scholarship recipients are required to adhere the following pledge:
In consideration of the 1 for 2 Education Foundation (“the Foundation”) making this scholarship grant I pledge to support the mission of the Foundation to build a community of scholars who are dedicated to being life-long learners by:
a) participating in the annual Foundation Gathering while receiving my scholarship,
b) supporting my fellow Foundation Scholars’ academic and career goals during my lifetime, and
c) paying for a comparable scholarship grant for two persons, who are not related to me by blood, adoption, or marriage, during my lifetime
The Foundation is seeking highly motivated applicants who reside in the U.S. and are applying to attend or are already attending an accredited U.S. four-year college and university. Scholarship grants are contingent upon acceptance to the U.S. four-year college or university specified in the grant letter, as well as signed scholarship grant letter and pledge to the Foundation.
Up to 10 scholarships will be awarded for each academic year.
Applicants must be living in the United States and the college or university they attend must be located in the United States. The Foundation assumes no responsibility or obligation to obtain immigration documents for the applicant nor is the Foundation liable for the tax consequences of any scholarship.
Application closes after 500 complete applications are received or on February 15, 2021, whichever occurs first.
APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS TO APPLY
- GPA must be at least 3.7 unweighted, 4.0 weighted
- If you believe your GPA is on track for at least 3.7 unweighted or 4.0 weighted but for pass/fail grading implemented by your school due to the COVID pandemic, you are encouraged to still apply.

During this time, scholars will have a chance to meet other scholars, alumni, and directors. They will also participate in personal development and learning sessions aimed at preparing them to achieve their academic, career, and life goals.
