Notre Dame Scholarships
All students accepted for admission who have completed the financial aid process are automatically considered for all University need-based scholarship programs.

Approximately 150 Notre Dame clubs offer scholarships from their respective geographic areas. All applicants for financial aid are considered for club scholarships. Students will be advised by participating clubs if any additional steps (e.g., interview, essay) might be required by the local club. Similar to Notre Dame scholarships, club scholarships are given on the basis of demonstrated financial need.
Many private organizations provide scholarships to Notre Dame students. Scholarship information may be obtained by contacting civic, professional, religious and other community organizations. The College Board's Scholarship Search and FinAid! website provide scholarship search information. Caution is advised with respect to the use of fee-based scholarship search enterprises.
