University receives $1 million gift from anonymous donor

A $1 million gift from an anonymous donor will create a scholarship for students enrolled in Gannon University’s College of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences.

The donor, a Gannon alumnus, has created the Cathedral College Endowed Merit Scholarship in the Liberal Arts. Gannon University was established by Archbishop John Mark Gannon as Cathedral College. The scholarship’s name is a tribute to the university’s founding name and to its early history.

 The scholarship is designed for academically qualified, full-time undergraduate students. Awards may be renewed annually, provided scholarship recipients maintain at least a 3.5 grade point average.

Preference for scholarship awards will be given to first-generation college students.

Any individual, foundation, trust, company or other organization may make additional gifts to the scholarship fund.

For more information on the Cathedral College Endowed Merit Scholarship in the Liberal Arts, contact Anthony Fulgenzio, director of philanthropy at Gannon University, at 814-871-7786.
