Each year the Newman Catholic Student Center awards scholarships to Catholic undergraduate and graduate students attending The University of Iowa who are involved at the Newman Catholic Student Center. We are able to offer a number of scholarships each academic year. Applications are available in the spring for the following academic year.
Through the generosity of numerous benefactors, Newman Center established a fund through The University of Iowa Center for Advancement for two annual partial scholarships to be awarded to one male and one female student-athlete involved at the Newman Center. The selection process, with registration and participation at the Newman Center as a focal point, is conducted by the UI Athletic Department.
Annually, scholarships of $500-$1000 are given to Beckman Catholic graduates who are active in the Newman Catholic Student Center. The purpose of the scholarship program is to help Beckman graduates continue in, and to grow in, their journey of faith from their home parish. Recipients participate in on-campus Newman Center programs while pursuing their academic degree at the UI. Former Xavier (now Beckman Catholic) High and U of I graduate, Nic Goeres, has provided these scholarship funds annually since 2012.
A special thanks to the generosity of many beneficiaries who support these Newman Catholic Student Center Scholarship Funds at The University of Iowa Center for Advancement.
