Our Program springs from the University of Notre Dame's rich tradition of academic excellence and social concern, and we create an environment in which scholars will mature both in intellect and character. During their four year journey through our Program, Hesburgh-Yusko scholars will develop their passions and discover their purpose. After having completed our Program, Hesburgh-Yusko scholars will affirm Father Hesburgh's idea that, even in the modern world, one person can truly make a difference.
Program Benefits Include:
- Four years of merit scholarship awards of $25,000 per year ($100,000 over four years) toward the cost of attending Notre Dame as a full-time student.
- Intellectual engagement within a community of scholars participating in regular discussion forums, loval initiatives, and social activities throughout the academic year. Guidance advice on coursework and summer projects.
- Four summer enrichment experiences: Wilderness Leadership, Social Justice, Global Inquiry, and Professional Venture. During these summers, scholars travel the world, discover new interests, identify true passions, refine lifelong pursuits, and lay groundwork for future careers.
- Guidance and support from a dedicated Program staff and faculty mentors.
