2015-2016 Gilligan Public Service Scholarship

It's that time of year again! We are proud to announce the 2015-2016 Gilligan Public Service Scholarship application is now available here.

The Gilligan Public Service Scholarship was established to honor the public service legacy of former Ohio Governor John J. Gilligan. Two scholarships are awarded annually to Xavier students who demonstrate their commitment to public service.

There is a long history of the Gilligan family at Xavier. The Governor's father was Xavier's first men's basketball coach and was one of the six initial lay members of the University's Board of Trustees. After returning from WWII, Governor Gilligan took his first job teaching literature at the University. He later ran for Cincinnati City Council and won. He also served in Congress before becoming Governor. We continue honor his legacy after his passing in 2013.

The application and all supporting documents must be received by Friday, March 13 at 5:00 p.m.
