Scholarships & Financial Aid
St. Bonaventure University is a decision you can afford to make
Selecting the right university is important. Over a lifetime, the benefits of a quality college education will far exceed its costs. But we realize that cost is an important factor, so we offer aid based on need and academic performance, and we encourage ALL students to apply for financial aid.

Here's what you need to do
Our goal at St. Bonaventure is to make a private Catholic university education available to as many students as possible.
To be considered for need- or academic-based financial assistance, a student must first apply for admission.
We encourage each student to apply for need-based aid by submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA can be filed after October 1. For maximum award consideration, make sure your FAFSA is filed no later than February 15. There is no University-specific form or supplement to complete. Read more about why it is important to file the FAFSA.
