Brother John Lavelle, C.S.C. College Scholarship
The Brother John Lavelle College Scholarship empowers young adult students to excel at pro-life leadership and activism, helping to build up the culture of life amongst college students in our community in a powerful way. Each year, one exemplary pro-life student leader is honored with a $500 cash scholarship to be put toward expenses incurred while continuing education. The award will be presented at the Respect Life Prayer Dinner on April 9th, 2019.
Brother John Lavelle, C.S.C., was a tireless advocate for the pro-life cause at Notre Dame in the 1970s and 1980s. His work with college students inspired countless young people to carry on his mission.
The Brother John Scholarship is open to all graduating high school seniors and current college students.
