WHAT IS THE JOHN SCULLY MEMORIAL TRUST SCHOLARSHIP?

  

WHAT IS THE JOHN SCULLY MEMORIAL TRUST SCHOLARSHIP?
  

The Scully Scholarship Fund (“Scholarship”) was established in 1994 after John Scully was tragically killed in the 101 California shooting.   The Scholarship was initiated by a group of John’s USF School of Law classmates.  In 1994, a large fundraiser was held at Bimbo’s in San Francisco. 


 In 2003, the Scholarship was endowed by USF.  Since its inception, at least one law student a year is awarded the Scholarship for exuding John’s love of the outdoors, academic excellence and work-life balance.   The typical yearly gift to the recipient is in the range of $3000 - $4000.  


In memory of the 25th anniversary of John’s passing, the Scholarship committee would like to raise an additional $25,000 - $50,000 more for the Scholarship. Your gift, will go a long way in helping deserving USF "lawyers to be" with the many costs associated with Law School and help keep John's memory and values for the outdoors and work-life balance alive.


Donations of any amount are welcome throughout the year and are appreciated.   


You can use the donate button to contribute at anytime.  But please remember to identify your contribution as going to the John Scully Memorial Scholarship Fund on the USF Donation Site.  

WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
