  • Call for O'Connor and Savage Scholarship Nominatio. . . - 5 days ago | 427 views

    Call for O'Connor and Savage Scholarship Nominations

    Posted: 12/13/14 12:58 PM

    All departments are invited to nominate candidates for the Paul L. O'Connor, S.J. Scholarship and the Thomas G. Savage, S.J. Scholarships.  Attached are flyers that with brief descriptions of the scholarships and applicable deadlines.  Application forms have been sent to department chairs and program directors via an e-mail sent by your dean’s administrative assistant. 

    The deadline for students to request a nomination from their department is January 14, 2015The chair of the sponsoring department should submit all nomination materials to Christine Sisson, Assistant Director, Office of Student Financial Assistance, by 5:00 pm, Friday, January 30, 2015.  

    Note that the timing of this application process has shifted from years past.  Applications have previously been due in April.  Feedback from faculty indicated that this was not an ideal time to write recommendation letters.  In addition, with the St. Francis Xavier Scholarship Competition having shifted to late March, this placed an undue burden on the Financial Aid & Scholarship Committee to make SFX, O’Connor, and Savage decisions all in April.  Thus, applications for O’Connor and Savage will now be due each January with decisions made in February.

    Should you have questions, please feel free to contact Aaron Meis at meisa@xavier.edu or 745-2941, Tamara Giluk at gilukt@xavier.edu or 745-3144, or Christine Sisson at sisson@xavier.edu or 745-2989.
