Patrick P. Lee Foundation Scholarship

Patrick P. Lee Foundation Scholars gather outside McDonnell Douglas Hall

The Patrick P. Lee Foundation Scholarship supports the education of engineering students in the School of Science and Engineering at SLU. The scholarship will assist with the educational costs of engineering students, who are U.S. citizens and wish to contribute to the improvement of the United States’ manufacturing growth.

A scholarship committee, formed through the School of Science and Engineering Dean’s Office and the school’s development officer, will conduct the application and selection process for the scholarship awards. The committee will inform Student Financial Services of the recipients once the students have accepted the award.

Scholarship award is up to $25,000 (based on need) for as many as 20 students. 

Application is available through the Scholarship Suite in MySLU and will be open during February and March 2023.
