Leadership in Service Scholarship

Help Your Students Soar

At the University of Dayton, students are challenged to connect learning and scholarship with leadership and service. It’s part of our Catholic, Marianist educational philosophy.

To honor this tradition, we award Leadership in Service scholarships to students who have an innate desire for personal development and are committed to service within their school, church or community. The nomination period for students starting at UD in Fall 2024 ended on November 1, 2023. Nominations for students starting at UD in Fall 2025 will open in the fall.

In addition to receiving a Leadership in Service scholarship, worth up to $2,500 per year over four years, recipients will have opportunities to continue developing leadership skills and service to others, like leadership conferences and on-campus leadership activities and organizations.

By applying to UD, students are also eligible for additional scholarships, including merit scholarships up to $31,000 per year for four years.
