The Feast of St. Jerome is an opportunity for our community to celebrate our important mission in Catholic higher education and human formation at the University of Waterloo. Our event theme, “Building Community Together” recognizes the importance that students, faculty, staff, alumni, friends, and donors make on a daily basis to advance this mission.
“My education is incredibly important to me, and this scholarship inspires me to work even harder to succeed in my future schooling, so that one day I may have the opportunity to give back to the St. Jerome’s community in the same way and brighten another student’s future as you have done for me. Thank you so much!” – Candice, Class of ’21, English and Psychology.
Our patron saint, St. Jerome recognized the significance of scholarship. Our University remains committed to providing students with the opportunity to begin their academic journey with financial support. On October 1, 2022, St. Jerome’s University welcomes you to join us as we continue “Building Community Together”.

THE IMPACT OF YOUR CONTRIBUTION
ST. JEROME’S UNIVERSITY prides itself on providing all of its first-year students with an entrance scholarship. This financial commitment demonstrates to our students that they are becoming part of a community where all are welcome and supported to ensure their success. By removing a portion of the financial barrier first-year students often face, St. Jerome’s University actively commits to their learning and academic success as they start their journey at the University. In 2022, the need to fulfill this commitment is more critical than ever before.
Donations from the community and members of St. Jerome’s University allow us to continue providing first-year scholarships. Government funding (received through our relationship with the University of Waterloo), followed by student tuition fees, support our operating budget but is not enough. The Feast of St. Jerome annual fundraising event at the University has therefore become critical to raising monies, and to continuing to ensure that we remain an inclusive community where financial need is not a barrier for first-year students seeking knowledge.
When you give to St. Jerome's University, you support a premier Catholic liberal arts institution that stewards each student's unique talent and inspires them to become informed citizens; citizens who have the humility to work together for the common good, and the courage to lead in building a more just society.
