Marquette's Urban Scholars

Your support makes a difference. Just ask incoming first-year student Tommy Walls, who is attending Marquette on an Urban Scholarship. Marquette's Urban Scholars Program provides full-tuition scholarships each year to 10 high-achieving students, including two members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee. Tommy was the 2010 Youth of the Year for the Milwaukee region, state of Wisconsin and Midwest region, and he competed to be the National Youth of the Year. Tommy recently shared his story of perseverance and his path to the Boys & Girls Clubs — and, ultimately, Marquette — at a BGCA awards dinner.

Without financial aid, I would have never had the opportunity to build my leadershio skills and take my nonprofit to the next level and truly impact my community.

Our Vision

Our vision is to be a university where all students who aspire to a Jesuit education have access to the scholarship aid they need to make a Marquette education possible. Your commitment can make this happen.

Today’s Marquette students depend on the students of yesterday more than ever. In the past, it was possible for students to pay for most or all of their education through summer employment and part-time jobs. This is no longer the case. 

Your gift toward scholarship aid is one way you can share your Marquette experience with the next generation of scholars. Help spread the word. Give today. Give Marquette.
