Scholarship Month

This May your gifts to scholarships not only help current Zags complete their studies, but they will be matched by some generous Zag families, effectively doubling your impact. You can give the next generation of hopeful Zags access to a Jesuit education, preparing them to become the leaders our world needs most.

Ensuring access to an affordable and exemplary Jesuit education 

For more than 135 years, students have been able to attend Gonzaga University because of the generosity of others. It started with the Jesuits long ago, believing that students deserved to receive a well-rounded, Catholic education, and has continued for generations because of the generosity of people just like you.

You can help Gonzaga deliver on the Zag scholarship promise with a scholarship gift that will: 

Attract and retain outstanding and talented students who aspire to transform the world 
Increase accessibility to first-generation students and those from a diverse background 
Drive student debt down through increased scholarship opportunities
Help students who rely on these funds to achieve their goal of a Gonzaga degree
Help make Gonzaga less tuition-dependent

Attending Gonzaga University has been my dream since I was nine years old, and the scholarships I received helped make it that much more possible. I am eternally grateful for everyone who helped me achieve the opportunity to be part of this amazing community. Service has always been a part of who I am, and I am continuously inspired by the community’s generosity and passion for serving others. It pushes me to do more in and around the communities I am a part of.

Economics - Science

I am greatly appreciative of the contribution and investment in my future. During my time at GU, I was able to study the science of economics, while also pursuing minors in analytical finance and French. Through scholarships, I was able to set my sights high and pursue a degree and field of work that is both fascinating and crucial for the future. Thank you so much for making my experience possible.

Psychology and Sociology

My scholarships shaped my educational journey and future prospects. I was able to be fully immersed at GU in my studies and extracurricular activities. It also made a huge difference in my life with my mom being a single parent sending two daughters to higher education as both a first-generation American and college student.

Environmental Studies

My experience at Gonzaga can be summed up as a special time in a special place. Growing up in Spokane, I was all about Gonzaga basketball, but a GU education seemed just out of reach. At 30, I was finally able to attend my dream school. I could not be more thankful to the people that made GU possible for me. Thanks to scholarships, I had the time to get involved on campus, discover new interests and was able to further my education and personal growth to be the best person I could be.

During my time at GU, I’ve been able to dive into my interests and uncover new passions. Many of the aspects that make GU special have elevated my college experience, and none of that would be possible without scholarships. Service and aiding others play a large role in my life, especially through my work with the Health Equity Circle and Reproductive Justice Club. My diverse academic knowledge has allowed me to look at my subject material from a new perspective, and I am thankful to all who have created that experience.
