Patrick Stanley was a father and a lifelong learner who was passionate about education and passed away too soon.

Patrick was a non-traditional student who finished his Bachelor’s degree at age 28, went back to school and earned his Master’s at the age of 52. At the time of his death at the age of 55, Patrick was applying for Ph.D. programs. 

This scholarship seeks to honor the life of Patrick Stanley and his love of learning by supporting a non-traditional student who is returning to school after a break in their education. 

Any undergraduate or graduate student who is at least 25 years old and is returning to school after a gap in their education may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, submit an essay or a short video describing your academic history and your motivation to continue your education.
