Christendom College has been offering a full-tuition scholarship competition for many years, giving select students the opportunity to receive a rigorous liberal arts education for only the cost of room and board.
Named after St. Padre Pio, the two scholarships are awarded to students each year who have been accepted to the college and who have illustrated their many academic achievements, through achieving specific standardized tests scores, writing an essay on a certain topic, and meeting with a panel of Christendom faculty members .
The students, and their parents, are invited to attend the Scholarship Competition on March 7, 2014, on Christendom’s Front Royal, Va., campus. Students will have the opportunity to sit in on classes, hear from College President Dr. Timothy O’Donnell, tour the campus, and to mingle during dinner with Christendom’s esteemed faculty. Parents will also have the opportunity to hear from Dr. O’Donnell, as well as from Admissions Director Tom McFadden on such topics as financial aid, alumni and careers, semester in Rome program, and much more. There will be a specific talk detailing the academic program and focusing on the rigorous core curriculum and why it is essential to the education offered at Christendom. They will be able to take part in the evening dinner reception as well, joining their children and the members of the faculty.
