The Franciscan Memorial Scholarship Fund has been initiated with a contribution from the Friars of Siena College on behalf of the Province of the Most Holy Name of Jesus, of the Order of Friars Minor. The fund honors the devotion and dedication of the Friars who have served Siena over the past 70+ years, from the founding of the College. The fund has been established in recognition of the longstanding tradition of Franciscan concern for those in society whose access to higher education has been restricted because of ethnic origin or social condition. Preference will be given to individual students who have demonstrated concern for the well being of their communities. Recipients should be full-time students who exhibit financial need. The Director of Financial Aid will submit to the Guardian of the Siena Friary a list of all eligible candidates. Applicants will be recommended by the Guardian of the Siena Friary to the Financial Aid Committee. Final selection will be at the discretion of the Financial Aid Committee.
