Anna & Edward J. Kennedy Scholarship
Dr. Art Kennedy (’60) established this scholarship in honor of his grandparents, Anna and Edward J. Kennedy. It is available to sophomores and upperclassmen majoring in health sciences or engineering. Art Kennedy received a bachelor’s degree in basic health science from Gonzaga, but, inspired by a childhood conversation with his grandmother in her kitchen, went on to earn two more degrees, one from the University of Washington and another from Northwestern University.
“Artie, your education is the only thing they can’t take away from you,” Anna told her young grandson at the time.
“I credit the solid Jesuit education I received from GU as the basis of a successful academic and professional career,” Art said. “The love nd unconditional support provided by my grandparents paved my way at Gonzaga University.”
