Alumni Scholarship

scholarship student

For 39 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.  Since the scholarship began, we have given out over 2000 scholarships, totaling over $2.4 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.
