Sullivan Advanced Study Scholarship Program

Some General Program applicants may be eligible and invited to apply for a Sullivan Advanced Study Scholarship – a greater dollar amount scholarship, typically ranging from $7,500-$20,000, depending upon funds available and number of qualified applicants per year. The Sullivan awards are given to an exclusive group of students each year who demonstrate exceptional academic performance and potential, as well as great financial need. A select group of applicants is invited to apply for a Sullivan Award in mid-to-late April, based upon their General Application and info submitted to us. Sullivan applications are collected until the end of April. Sullivan applicants who are not selected for the award will be placed back into the General Scholarship Program pool for an award. Fallen Hero scholars are not eligible for Sullivan awards.
