Need Based Grants

Institutional Grants

  • Xavier Grant
  • Claver Award

The need-based awards pay tribute to two other Jesuit priests. Saint Francis Xavier labored in India and the far East in the 16th century and was one of the greatest missionaries since apostolic times. Saint Peter Claver, often described as "the slave of slaves," spent his priestly life working among the slaves in Colombia, South America, during the 17th century.
