Nancy Jo Benjamin Essay Scholarship

Open to Middle School Students | Two Awards of $250

Nancy Jo was a devoted mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She worked at the University of Notre Dame for many years, but family always came first for Nancy Jo.

Now, her legacy of life and love lives on in our Nancy Jo Benjamin Essay Scholarship.

This scholarship cultivates pro-life leadership at a young age by encouraging students to articulate pro-life truth with compassion. Congratulations to our 2023 Nancy Jo Benjamin Essay Contest Winners, Annika Pluta and Bryce Thomas.
