Celebrating Achievement:
The USM BizFest Scholarship


The University of Saint Mary is offering scholarships to students who successfully complete the KC BizFest program.

This scholarship—worth up to $5,000 a year—is open to both BizFest students who successfully apply for admission to the University of Saint Mary for the academic year following their high school graduation, and to those BizFest participants who seek to transfer to the University of Saint Mary after achieving success and demonstrating aptitude at another college or university.

Students who earn a USM BizFest Scholarship may still be eligible for other institutional scholarships or aid, based on their record of academic achievement, artistic or athletic talent, or demonstrated financial need.

BizFest Scholarships are limited!

For priority consideration for a USM BizFest Scholarship, you must apply for admission and notify the university of your BizFest experience no later than April 25 prior to the start of a Fall Semester.

  • A minimum ACT score of 18, including a minimum score of 18 on the ACT English section.

For Transfer Students

  • A minimum college GPA of 2.5

  • Demonstrated significant progress toward attaining a degree; demonstrated success in meaningful classes.
