Corazon C. Aquino Scholarship Created in honor of former President of the Philippines and Mount Saint Vincent alumna, the Corazon C. Aquino award is a full-tuition scholarship awarded to four high-achieving incoming first-year students of Filipino descent. Aquino Scholars will join in the continued effort to further enhance Filipino culture at Mount Saint Vincent by playing an active role in Student Activities and Community Service. Specifically, these Scholars often hold leadership roles in a variety of our Filipino Clubs such as SAMAHAN and Filiment. All Aquino Scholars will need to maintain a 3.2 GPA at Mount Saint Vincent to retain their award and will be required to declare either a Philippine Studies or Tagalog minor. Applicants will be required to complete an interview with the Aquino Scholarship Committee as a part of their application for this scholarship.
