Aquinas Institute, sponsored by the Order of Preachers (Dominicans), instituted the Great Preacher Award in 1995 to recognize those, who by their words and actions, have contributed in an outstanding way to the building of the Catholic community. Aquinas Institute considers the Great Preacher Award a powerful means of renewing the Church and promoting good preaching while sharing its Dominican charism. The award is intended not only to sustain preachers of the Word but also to help Catholics become more attuned to hearing the Word.
Giving to Aquinas
If you were in the seminary or the convent in 1926, the year classes met at Aquinas Institute for the first time, you had no financial worries. Religious orders or bishops would have covered all your expenses for the duration of your studies. In most cases, tuition charges were not even listed.
Today the situation is different. All of our students – religious, lay and seminarians alike – pay more than $10,000 a year in tuition. While seminarians and vowed religious come forward to study with the support of their respective order, lay students receive no such financial assistance. They meet their educational expenses with a combination of scholarships, loans, and part-time work.
Private gift support from religious communities, former students, friends and foundations has helped Aquinas Institute uphold its Dominican values for over 75 years, while constantly revitalizing and strengthening programs in response to the changing needs of the Church. We invite you to partner with us to continue our mission.
- Annual Fund - The Aquinas Annual Fund provides financial support for our mission of theological education and benefits the future leaders of the Church.
- Endowed Gifts - Endowed gifts provide for scholarships, endowed chairs, and the continued academic excellence of Aquinas Institute.

We appreciate your gift to the Aquinas Institute of Theology Fund.
