Palermo Founders Fund

The Patrick F. Palermo Honors Program Founders Fund

The Palermo Founders Fund was established in 2004 and provides annual support for Honors students undertaking Honors Thesis projects that involve international research, service and leadership in the community, or which advance the realization of a just society. All of these are characteristics of the University’s distinctive approach to enhanced higher education in the Catholic and Marianist tradition. The endowed Dr. Patrick F. Palermo Honors Program Founders Fund is an example of the generosity of our alumni.

Fellowships that are awarded from this Fund are determined during the Honors Thesis Research Proposal and Fellowship Application process each year.
