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. The scholarship is paid out in equal quarterly installments over the course of the program.
