The 2020 Nonprofit Leadership Scholarship Overview and Application will be available online starting December 15, 2019.
The Master of Nonprofit Leadership (MNPL) Mary Stewart Hall Rising Leader Scholarship is awarded to an incoming graduate student who has a record of strong academic performance, outstanding leadership potential, and a commitment to working and making positive contributions to the nonprofit sector.
The Rising Leader Scholarship is named for Mary Stewart Hall, Ph.D., founding Director of the Master of Nonprofit Leadership Program at Seattle University. Dr. Hall had a distinguished record of leading philanthropic initiatives regionally and nationally. In the 1990’s she led the statewide initiative to identify the competencies needed for effective nonprofit leadership, which became the basis of the MNPL curriculum.
Dr. Hall was known for identifying rising leaders, and encouraging them to join the Master of Nonprofit Leadership program at Seattle University so that they could accelerate their contributions to the sector. This scholarship honors her legacy by investing in students with outstanding potential.
One award of $10,000, distributed in equal quarterly installments over both years of the program (Fall 2020-Spring 2022). The recipient must remain enrolled in the MNPL program and maintain good academic standing to continue receiving the scholarship.
All scholarship materials must be received by March 15, 2020.
We will notify applicants by April 15 whether or not you received the Mary Stewart Hall Scholarship Award. All complete applications will be reviewed by the selection committee. Candidates will be evaluated based on the award criteria and may be asked to meet with the committee for further consideration.
