posted Jun 2 2017 9:33 AM


This is an impressive number!  Through Merit and Private Scholarship offered by local, state-wide and country-wide groups and universities, Marquette students continue to increase the total money offered to the class of 2017 to help continue their education.  The Academic counselors at Marquette, the students and their parents continue to find scholarship money.  This is a process that begins early.  The Marquette counselors, Jodie Zupprich (Jr & Sr) and Patty Crotty (frosh & soph) work diligently to find an array of Scholarships to meet the multitude of talents our students have.

Below are a few of the scholarships that our students have received.  Congratulations Class of 2017!  Don't be surprised if this figure changes; the scholarships keep rolling in!
