Presidential Scholarship Program

Congratulations on qualifying for this prestigious award at Fontbonne University! Your participation in the interview process will provide our faculty and staff with a deeper understanding of your academic strengths, extracurricular involvement and anticipated contributions to Fontbonne University. We look forward to learning all about you and your potential impact on our community!


Saturday, February 13, 2021

We would like to invite you to attend a virtual interview interview day. Your parents or guardians are invited to attend a Parent Panel including various university personnel while you interview.

Candidates and their families will have the opportunity to meet the Fontbonne University President, Dr. Nancy Blattner, and will interact with current Presidential Scholarship recipients, faculty and staff to learn more about our welcoming, supportive and enriching campus community.

If you haven’t visited our campus or St. Louis, we encourage you to take a virtual campus tour and explore St. Louis.

Please note that attendance for the entirety of the program is required to be considered to receive the Presidential Scholarship. You must register by January 31 in order to attend.

Interview Tips

The interview format will consist of three parts. Students will undergo individual interviews with a selection of faculty members, contribute in a group discussion with their peers regarding responsible citizenship and participate in a group activity. You will be asked a variety of questions that will help us learn more about your academic achievements, leadership skills and ability to apply your strengths to Fontbonne University’s mission to serving a world in need.

To best prepare for the interviews, identify specific examples of your academic, leadership and service accomplishments; reasons for pursuing higher education; future plans for responsibly impacting society and overall strengths of your character. When you submit your registration, you have the option to upload a resume of activities, which will be given to your interviewer to review ahead of time.

Business casual dress is encouraged as you will want to be prepared to have your video on. If you need technological or space accommodations, please email
