It all starts with scholarships

When you support scholarships, you help our students manage costs and make ends meet. But more than that, you give them a transformative sense of belonging, purpose and personal growth.

You help us shape a new generation of leaders ready to face the future and improve our world.

More than 300 faculty members from across Creighton’s schools and colleges teach in the Graduate School.

Bringing excellent students to Creighton

Over the past decade, Creighton’s number of graduate students has more than tripled, thanks to our expansion of courses and programs — now numbering more than 45 — and the tremendous faculty driving our interdisciplinary curriculum.  

Scholarships have also played a huge role in attracting excellent students to Creighton. Most of our students receive financial aid or scholarships. Last year alone, Creighton awarded nearly 1,900 donor-funded scholarships to students in all schools and colleges. 

We understand the shifting landscape of higher education and the changing needs of our students. And we will rely upon our alumni and friends to help us lead the way. 

Thanks to support from donors like you, students from across the world come to the Graduate School for our accelerated programs, certificates, dual degrees, master’s degrees and doctoral degrees in an array of disciplines.

Helping me, helping others

“At Creighton, I've had a lot of opportunities, which have deepened my skills and helped me grow as a person and a professional. Without the help of scholarships, I wouldn't have been able to come to Creighton. Thank you for helping me so I can help others.”

Turning vision into action

“Your gift has a ripple effect beyond any one student. It benefits not just me but everyone I can help in the future. Creighton teaches us how to serve others, how to look the world’s problems in the face and do something. Every day, I see the value of my Jesuit education. Creighton shows me — shows all students, no matter their area of study — how to see clearly, how to turn vision into action.”

— Yolanda Reynolds, Graduate School

Making the most of her Creighton scholarships

Recipient of two Graduate Deans’ Scholarships, Elizabeth Crampsey considers herself fortunate—and mindful that the same aid does not exist for all graduate students. “There are limited financial opportunities for support at the graduate level,” she says, “I feel blessed.”
