Scholarship Funds

Unlimited Potential

We have more than 600 named scholarships that bring the full UD experience within reach to outstanding students from around the world.


The Robert W. Sherman Endowed Scholarship assists students with strong academic credentials, and good organizational leadership and/or citizenship skills. Mr. Sherman started in the newspaper business in 1928 at the age of 18 as a classified ad salesman for the Dayton Daily News. In 1979, he retired as Executive Vice President and a member of the Board of Directors of the Atlanta-based Cox Enterprises. Because he was never able to attend college, he established this scholarship fund at the university in the town where he began his career. The University of Dayton awarded him an honorary doctorate in humanities in 1994.

The Anthony J. Kuhn Endowed Engineering Scholarship was established to assist students who are studying in the School of Engineering with preference to those who are members of the Immaculate Conception Parish in Dayton, Ohio and who have graduated from one of the Catholic high schools in Dayton. Although not a UD alumnus, he credited his success in life to the generosity of the Marianist brothers whom he knew as a young man. Mr. Kuhn had a love and appreciation of knowledge and he wished to assist young people in fulfilling their dreams.

Sorrell Logothetis practiced labor and employment law for more than 50 years with an unmatched dedication and passion for his work. After working for the regional office of the National Labor Relations Board in Cincinnati, he moved to Dayton in 1967 to work in private practice at a downtown law firm that became Logothetis and Pence, and then Logothetis, Pence, and Doll. He practiced there for 37 years, and spent the last part of his career as a Partner and then Of Counsel at Cook & Logothetis, LLC in Cincinnati until his death at the age of 81. Sorrell was born and raised in Youngstown, Ohio, and was the son of Greek immigrants. Throughout his career, he mentored many young lawyers, and hired several from the UD School of Law, either as interns or recent graduates. His children established a scholarship in his name for students in the School of Law. This fund will support students who are from the State of Ohio.

The Kenneth C. Schraut, Ph.D., Memorial Scholarship assists students who are majoring in mathematics in the College of Arts & Sciences who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement. This scholarship fund honors Dr. Kenneth Schraut who was a mathematics professor at UD for more than 50 years, including 16 years as Chair of the Department of Mathematics. Dr. Schraut directed the initial research effort that led to the creation of the University of Dayton Research Institute.

The Ron Burrows Scholarship for Accounting Scholarship assists students who are majoring in accounting. The scholarship was established by the friends, former students, colleagues and family of Ron Burrows to honor him and his career at UD. Ron served the Department of Accounting for 31 years, including as Chair for 27 of those years.

I hope to be able to provide the example of someone truly deserving of this scholarship, both in my on-campus behaviors and actions but also in my results in the classroom and outside of it as well.
