Vincentian Scholars Vincentian Scholars Anna Capello and Britini D'Angelo serving at the PR Department at Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center
Envisioned and realized through the generosity of the Glynn family, the Vincentian Scholars Program is an elite four-year scholarship program that forms leaders in the Vincentian tradition academically, practically, and spiritually. A special emphasis on social justice is a hallmark of the program. Each scholar accepted into the program not only must maintain a high grade point average, but also must develop the integrity and responsibility necessary to work side by side with local community leaders.
A central part of the scholars’ endeavor is dedicated to concrete action, working closely with a variety of local service partners promoting education, health, law, and advocacy for marginalized populations. With the help of mentors drawn from the administration and faculty, Vincentian Scholars reflect on the meaning of their service experience, through a racial justice framework, and with faculty in their major or minor concentrations on research aimed at systemic change. Joining with the other cohorts of scholars, they participate in and promote knowledge of the Vincentian charism.
Scholarship winners are rewarded at the level of a trustee scholarship and will also receive up to $5,000 per year as long as they maintain satisfactory academic performance and they fulfill scholarship responsibilities.
APPLICATIONS ARE CLOSED FOR THE 2021-22 ACADEMIC YEAR. Awards coming soon!
