    Eligible Programs

    Corporate partner scholarships only apply to students enrolled in these programs:

    How to Apply for the Corporate Partner Scholarship

    If you're a new student, your first step is to list your employer on your application form. After you're accepted into the University (but before registering for classes), you'll then submit a partnership form to the Office of the Registrar.

    Students in the joint St. Catherine - St. Thomas Master of Social Work (MSW) program should use the form for MSW students, and submit to the MSW Program Manager. Students in all other eligible programs, listed above, should use the partnership form for St. Kate's students and submit it to the St. Catherine University Office of the Registrar.
