Mount St. Clare Education Foundation
The rich history and vibrant heritage of "The Mount" is being preserved to
benefit current and future students of Ashford
under the auspices of the Mount Saint Clare Education
In order to continue the long practice of offering scholarships to deserving
students with financial need, the Foundation was established as the successor
nonprofit / tax-deductible entity of Mount St. Clare College.
"We see the Foundation as our most productive way to support the students of
higher education in Clinton now that the future of the University has been
assured through the transfer of ownership to Bridgepoint Education," explained
Janice Cebula OSF, President of the Clinton Franciscans in 2005. "The Sisters
of St. Francis were founded nearly 140 years ago in eastern Kentucky to teach
the daughters of local farmers following the devastation of the Civil War.
Providing education in a local setting for those who need it most has always
been a hallmark of our ministry," she noted.
Through the generosity of many people, a number of endowed scholarships have
been established over the years. The Foundation will continue to accept donations
to these endowed scholarship funds and to establish new memorial scholarships
according to donor specifications. The alumni have always been strong
supporters of the scholarship program along with local businesses and
The scholarships are awarded in conjunction with the Ashford University
according to the criteria established by the donors. For more information, contact the Ashford
