Each year, Seattle University selects nine incoming freshmen to receive the Sullivan Leadership Award. This award covers the entirety of their undergraduate tuition, housing, and meals for four years of study. We seek students with diverse leadership styles and personal backgrounds to join our Sullivan Scholar community. Sullivan Scholars are not easily defined, coming from a variety of heritages—small towns to large cities, public and independent schools, Catholic or from many other spiritual traditions. We seek students, like you, to carry forward our holistic definition of academic excellence, one that transcends classroom performance. Beyond monetary support, our faculty mentorship and your connections within the Sullivan Scholar community will promote your personal and professional growth–taking you to new heights as a change agent for a just and humane world.
First awarded in 1983 and named after Sue Naef, who left her estate to the university for scholarships upon her death in 1982.
