Trustey Family Scholars Program

The Trustey Family Scholars Program is an opportunity open to all undergraduate students who have demonstrated excellent and outstanding academic achievement, have a skill of Commitment to service, and are majoring in the College of Engineering or Science.

The Notre Dame Scholarship Programme    

The Notre Dame Scholars’ Program selects, advises, and coordinates programming for more than 350 Notre Dame students who receive merit-based scholarship funding at the University of Notre Dame as part of the University’s more than 25 scholarship programs. Students are selected to receive such scholarships primarily based on their extraordinary intellectual and personal achievements.

Scholarship recipients receive access to a variety of programming, enrichment, personal and professional development, and community-building opportunities coordinated by the Notre Dame Scholars’ Program. The University expects these students to leverage such opportunities to maximize their potential as scholars, servants, and leaders.

Notre Dame has offered merit scholarship programs since 2009 when it selected the first cohort of students to participate in The Hesburgh-Yusko Scholars Program, a comprehensive, merit-based scholarship, and leadership-development program that seeks to attract, encourage and equip extraordinary students who will have a transformational effect on the Notre Dame community, the Church, and the world.


The scholarship will award the following benefits to scholars;

An annual award of $25,000 toward the tuition fee for a duration of up to four years of undergraduate study, which is a total of $100,000. This award is independent of any financial aid that a scholar may qualify for and receive.

Mandatory participation in a funded one-week Outward Bound Wilderness Leadership Canoe Expedition in the Boundary Waters in Minnesota.

To be Eligible

Here is a list of requirements to check before applying for the scholarship;

Applicants must be full-time undergraduate enrollment.

Applicant must be able to maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.0. If a scholar’s cumulative GPA falls below this requirement at the conclusion of their second semester of freshman year, or at the conclusion of any semester thereafter, they will be placed on scholarship probation and retain the scholarship for the next semester. They will then have the opportunity to reestablish a cumulative GPA over 3.0. If for two consecutive semesters they have a cumulative average below 3.0, the scholarship will be revoked for the following semester. Trustey Family Scholars will regain the scholarship if their cumulative average returns to 3.0 or higher.

Applicant must have an academic intent in science or engineering. If a scholar decides to change their academic intent, they must notify the Faculty Director of the Notre Dame Scholars’ Program after three semesters of study in order to switch to another scholarship. Scholars will be moved to another merit scholarship with the equivalent tuition scholarship award. However, if a scholar received enrichment funding as part of their original award, this funding will no longer be guaranteed.

Applicants must have a record of good academic and disciplinary standing. If a scholar is subject to academic or disciplinary probation or dismissal, they will automatically lose their scholarship and status as a scholar and will not be reconsidered. University merit scholarship consideration is given for a maximum of eight semesters. Scholarship eligibility is not extended to account for any semester(s) the scholar did not meet scholarship requirements
