A recent study conducted by the Hechinger Report suggests that perceived high costs of a 4-year university coupled with a lack of awareness of financial aid and scholarship options are significant obstacles for prospective transfer students.

The new Black Hawk College scholarship model is just one of many ways in which St. Ambrose University continues to remove barriers for all students and envision strategic pathways to increase access to an affordable, private, liberal arts education.

"Our students transfer to universities throughout the U.S.," said Dr. Amy Maxeiner, Vice President for Instruction and Student Services at Black Hawk College. "St. Ambrose is a great transfer destination for many of them and this scholarship opportunity will certainly help. It's another example of how well our two institutions have partnered over the years for the benefit of our students."

The application period for the 2023-2024 school year at St. Ambrose University is now open. Current Black Hawk College students interested in taking advantage of this scholarship as well prospective students interested in exploring other financial aid opportunities are invited to complete the following next steps:
