Our Class Scholarship

As part of reunion activities in past years, the class of 1986 endowed a scholarship that has since helped students to make the most of a wonderful opportunity to attend St. Thomas. Below is a note of gratitude from a recent recipient!

“At the close of my second year at St. Thomas, I am already looking forward to what the next year at St. Thomas holds. Your gift of the Class of 1986 Endowed Scholarship is truly appreciated, not only because of the financial assistance but because it is so encouraging to know that there is such a generous community supporting me and my peers. It is a shining example of the lengths that Tommies are willing to go to in order to ensure that the St. Thomas legacy rmains strong.

" . . . I am so proud to call myself a part of the University of St. Thomas family and I am confident that the education that I am receving today will allow me to someday contribute and give back to the St. Thomas community as you, the class of 1986, have done. It is so touching to begin my junior year knowing that there are so many people ready and willing to help me reach the finsh line."

As this endowed scholarship increases in size with additional annual contributions as well as investment income, more Tommies will benefit from the generosity of alumni of the class of 1986. Alumni know firsthand the value of a St. Thomas education, and the university's goal is to put that opportunity within reach for all academically qualified students. Reunion giving helps the effort!

Our scholarship is awarded based on the following criteria:

  • Preference given to children of graduates from the class of 1986.

Alumni provide critical resources to St. Thomas, and through their philanthropy, every year they show new students what it looks like to give back and pursue the common good. We gratefully acknowledge alumni who gave financial gifts last fiscal year in support of a St. Thomas education.
