Abbey Premier Scholarship
Ad magna vocati - Called to great things
“Charity towards all” defines the spirit of Hintemeyer scholars. This distinguished program forms young Catholics to be men and women of integrity, charity, and prayer, and empowers them to be Christlike leaders at Belmont Abbey College and for the rest of their lives. Hintemeyer scholars share these characteristics: exemplary character; a serious commitment to the truth and life of Catholicism; exceptionally strong self-motivation, initiative, and creativity; academic diligence and accomplishment; and employment of these qualities in the service of others. Hintemeyer scholars grow together in faith, virtue, and knowledge, preparing to share these gifts with the world.
Confirmed, practicing Catholics with a non-weighted high school grade point average of 3.2 or higher.
Renewable for up to four years. Students must be full-time and remain in good academic standing.
