Alumni Association Scholarship
For 36 years Gonzaga University’s Alumni Association has been awarding scholarships to the children, grandchildren, or siblings of our alumni. What started out as three $300 awards has become over 45 awards totaling more than $160,000 each year. This year we will give out our 1000th scholarship for a grand total of over $2 million.
To be eligible for the scholarship, recipients must apply for the award and have a current FAFSA on file in the Financial Aid Office. A committee of Alumni Association board members reviews the applications, which include an essay, list of community service activities, academic achievement and financial aid. The top applicant is awarded the $15,000 Leppek Award while the next receives the $10,000 Schafer Family Award. Additional scholarships of $5,000 and $2,500 are given based upon the same criteria, until all funds are expended.
For more information on the Alumni Association Scholarship program, contact Bob Finn, director of the Alumni Association, at 509.313.6100 or
Applications for the 2015-16 academic year are now available.
