Arrupe and Ignatian Scholars

Arrupe Scholars:
Each year the top ten percent of the freshman class is invited to apply for the Arrupe Scholar designation. This invitation, for a renewable merit-based scholarship, is only offered to a select number of students based on an applicant’s placement test score, grade point average, and strong academic potential.

The Arrupe Scholars are selected by a committee of administrators and teachers. The selection is based on student test scores, student essay, and the teacher's recommendation. Each Arrupe Scholar has been awarded a $1,000 scholarship towards tuition each year, totaling $4,000 over the course of their enrollment at Gonzaga Prep. The student's academic profile is a tribute to the student's family, the student's teachers, and most importantly the student's hard work!
