Scholarships

At Benedictine University at Mesa, we promise our students an education that is affordable.

Student learning and success is our first priority. That's our promise to our students.

Chamber and DMA Discount

Employees and dependent children of Mesa Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Mesa Association members are eligible to receive a twenty-five percent (25%) tuition discount at Benedictine University at Mesa for traditional undergraduate programs.

Traditional undergraduate courses must be taken at the Mesa branch campus. This discount may not be combined with other prearranged student tuition discounts, such as institutional awards. Students who qualify for this discount through both agencies are eligible for only one 25 percent discount.

Students must verify every academic year (June through May) that they are, or their employer is, a Mesa Chamber of Commerce or Downtown Mesa Association member (via form below).

The Mesa Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Mesa Association Tuition Discount eligibility ceases for a student on the date when the eligible member is no longer employed by a Mesa Chamber of Commerce or Downtown Mesa Association member. If the member changes eligibility status during a term in which a tuition discount has been applied, the amount of the tuition discount will be prorated.

It is the responsibility of the employer to notify Benedictine University at Mesa of any employment changes.

Mesa Partnership Scholarship

New freshman and transfer students at the Benedictine University at Mesa campus may be eligible for the Mesa Partnership Scholarship to help with tuition costs. The partnership is a result of a joint effort to provide higher education opportunities to the greater East Valley.

The $3,000 annual scholarship is for dependents of City of Mesa employees. The scholarship is renewable if students maintain good academic standing. It can be combined with the Benedictine Heritage and St. Benedict Award scholarships, but cannot be awarded in conjunction with Benedictine’s Catholic High School award.
