Supporting Access to Future Generations of Legacy Students

In 1979, the Seattle University Alumni Board of Governors established the McGoldrick Alumni Scholarship Program, named after Fr. James B. McGoldrick S.J. (1895-1983), the late dean and professor of educational psychology. This scholarship is specifically designated for children, grandchildren and siblings of Seattle U alumni or current students. The university and its donors are dedicated to supporting this merit scholarship to continue the legacy and excellence of Seattle University from generation to generation.
