Leadership in Service Scholarship

The Sky’s No Limit

At the University of Dayton, students are challenged to connect scholarship and learning 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.

In addition to receiving a Leadership in Service scholarship, worth up to $2,500 per year, 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 $109,000 over four years for first-year undergraduate students, transfer and academic scholarships up to $20,500 each year for full-time transfer students, international merit scholarships and more.
