Moonlight Scholarship


Inspired and created in collaboration with Saint Mary’s alumnus and acclaimed actor, Mahershela Ali '96, the Moonlight Scholarship provides important financial support above and beyond other need-based assistance to students in the College’s High Potential (HP) program.

The HP program fosters student success by drawing on the strengths and resiliency of first generation and/or low-income scholars and leaders as they transition from high school to college and then the world beyond.
