Mt. de Chantal Music Scholarship

Mount de Chantal Scholarship Selection Criteria

Each year, Wheeling Jesuit University offers the $10,000 Mount de Chantal Music Scholarship to an incoming freshman female student.

Made possible by the Sisters of the Visitation, who for 160 years operated Mount de Chantal Visitation Academy in Wheeling, W.Va., the scholarship continues their legacy of nurturing musical talent in an exemplary educational setting.

The Mount de Chantal Music Scholarship is renewable for up to four years, provided that the recipient maintains a cumulative GPA of 3.0 following the sophomore year of study and participates actively each year in music performance on campus in a conducted ensemble.

Applicants must be faith-filled high school seniors with a record of Christian service, a minimum high-school GPA of 3.5, and a minimum score of 1100 on the SAT and/or 24 on the ACT standardized examinations.

Applicants are required to submit a 1,000-word essay on the role that music has played in her life, along with a written recommendation from at least one music teacher.

Members of the Wheeling Jesuit University Department of Fine Arts, in consultation with other faculty members and administrators, and the Sisters of the Visitation, select finalists. Finalists are invited to campus for an interview with Fine Arts faculty and a music audition.

Recipients of the Mount de Chantal Scholarship are selected with great care, as they must be and remain worthy of the great honor and privilege of receiving a scholarship honoring the legacy of the Sisters of the Visitation at Mount de Chantal Visitation Academy and their commitment to the arts, education and the development of young women with strong Christian values.
