Seattle University Featured for Challenge Grant Program

Seattle University was recently featured in the Washington Post for their Challenge Grant Program.  Challenge Grants are financial aid awarded to students with a high financial need for strong academic performance. Students that earn at least a 3.0 GPA in the fall semester have $1,000 added to their aid package for the winter and spring semesters. If a student maintains a GPA above a 3.0 for the remainder of the year, they keep the grant as a permanent addition to their aid. In connection with this program, Seattle University provides students with resources to support academic success and to create plans to avoid the loss of aid.

Loss of financial aid, even a small amount, can be a reason for students to discontinue their education. Seattle University considers it a worthy endeavor to support students in finishing their education, stemming from a rich history of Catholic higher education caring for the needs of a diverse student population.
