Leadership in Service Scholarship

The Sky’s No Limit

At the University of Dayton, our spirit ignites a boundless curiosity that drives us to search for truth. It pushes us to go beyond the easy answers and to use our knowledge to create a brighter tomorrow. Here, 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. Selected students are also eligible for a University merit scholarship, worth up to $112,000 over four years.

In addition to receiving a $10,000 Leadership in Service scholarship ($2,500 per year), recipients complete one leadership opportunity — such as attending a leadership conference, participating in on-campus leadership activities or writing personal reflections — each semester.
