New $7,500 Grant Program for New Mexico Students
on the Santa Fe Campus
St. John’s College is offering $7,500 grants to New Mexico high school graduates and veterans who enroll as freshmen. The New Mexico Odyssey Grant will work in tandem with generous need-based financial aid already in place.
All New Mexico residents within three years of high school graduation or successful completion of the General Educational Development (GED) tests are eligible. This includes:
- Home-schooled students who can provide verification of completion of an appropriate program
- Military veterans who have met any of these requirements within three years of honorable or medical discharge from service.
The St. John’s education is quite unique in the State and in the Nation and gives our students a profound advantage in the world. We want more New Mexicans to have this opportunity.
St. John’s College is the only liberal arts college in New Mexico. Its distinctive academic program features an integrated liberal arts and sciences curriculum centered on the reading and discussion of the “Great Books” of Western Civilization. These books have stood the test of time across the subjects of mathematics, philosophy, social and natural sciences, history, literature, theology,and music. Nearly 40% of the curriculum is math- and science-based. St. John’s College, Santa Fe, was recently ranked “Most Rigorous College” in the U.S. by Newsweek/The Daily Beast. The college is consistently noted for its progressive approach to liberal education, which challenges students to find their own perspectives on the enduring social, political, and spiritual issues of civilization. Graduates go on to successful careers in law, medicine, business, communications, education, technology, and scientific research, among many others.
A St. John’s College education allows you to discover for yourself important foundational ideas in the liberal arts and sciences. Through intensive dialogue on the range of subjects we address together, you will uncover your ability to cut your own path and find your own amazing place in the world.
