Malpass Scholars Program

Malpass Scholars Program

Eligibility Criteria

  • Outstanding academic achievement
  • Commitment to service
  • Commitment to major in the Mendoza College of Business with a preference for Finance majors


  • An annual award of $30,000 toward the cost of tuition for up to four years of undergraduate study, for a total of $120,000. This award is independent of any financial aid that a scholar may qualify for and receive.
  • In partnership with Notre Dame's Institute for Global Investing, Malpass Scholars will be afforded the opportunity to complete an internship in the money management sector during their sophomore or junior year.


  • Full-time undergraduate enrollment.
  • Maintenance of a 3.4 cumulative grade point average. If a scholar’s cumulative GPA falls below this requirement at the conclusion of their second semester of freshman year, or at the conclusion of any semester thereafter, they will be placed on scholarship probation and retain the scholarship for the next semester. They will then have the opportunity to reestablish a cumulative GPA over 3.4. If for two consecutive semesters they have a cumulative average below 3.4, the scholarship will be revoked for the following semester. Malpass Scholars will regain the scholarship if their cumulative average returns to 3.0 or higher.
  • Academic intent in the Mendoza College of Business, with a preference for Finance intents.
  • Maintenance of good academic and disciplinary standing. If a scholar is subject to academic or disciplinary probation or dismissal, they will automatically lose their scholarship and status as a scholar and will not be reconsidered.
  • University merit scholarship consideration is given for a maximum of eight semesters. Scholarship eligibility is not extended to account for any semester(s) the scholar did not meet scholarship requirements.
