University of Dayton’s Leadership in Service Scholarship

A University of Dayton education may be even more affordable for students who receive the Leadership in Service Scholarship.

Qualified students will receive a $10,000 Leadership in Service scholarship ($2,500 per year for four years). While the chosen students need to meet the admission standards, University of Dayton is looking for students with an innate desire to learn and grow in service to others — not necessarily ones with the highest GPA.
