The 2017-2018 Bannan Scholars were announced by Interim Provost Bob Dullea today.
To be eligible for a Bannan scholarship, Dullea wrote, a student must be an undergraduate junior or senior with a full-time major in the College of Science and Engineering. The applicant must have a minimum GPA of 3.5 and have a demonstrated commitment to serving both the university and the greater community.
The scholarship program is named for benefactor Thomas J. Bannan, “a leader in manufacturing, commerce, engineering and applied sciences and a man with a deep commitment to Seattle University,” the provost continued.
Bannan Scholars are selected in the spring quarter by the Bannan Selection Committee following an extensive selection process. Each student recipient makes a personal commitment to actively participate in the program’s activities. The $6,000 award is renewable for one year if academic parameters and program commitments are met.
