by Tori Kincaid | Feb 08, 2013

San Damiano Scholars 2012This Saturday, February 9, Marian University begins the selection process for the 11th class of San Damiano Scholars. The San Damiano Scholarship Program educates, supports, and invests in talented, college-age, young adults discerning a calling to leadership in faith-based institutions.

Created in 2003, the San Damiano Scholars Program has educated and formed faithful leaders for church, education, healthcare, and business. Almost fifty students from around the country will travel to campus on either February 9 or February 16 to interview for one of up to forty scholarships. There are three dimensions to the interview day: large group activity, interview with faculty and staff, and interview with current San Damiano Scholars. 

Mark Erdosy, Director of the San Damiano Scholars Program said, “We always look forward to hosting prospective Marian University and San Damiano Scholars for interviews. When they’re all in one room together it’s electric because of their enthusiasm and fire to share Christ with others!” 

San Damiano Scholar alumni minister in 15 dioceses around the country, are in formation for seminary and religious life, and embrace the Franciscan sponsorship value of Responsible Stewardship as they generously give of their time, talent, and treasure to build a more just society. Since the inception of the program, Marian University has invested more than $4 million in scholarships for students in the San Damiano Scholars program.
