Helping Students Pursue Their College & Career Aspirations

University of Notre Dame Hesburgh-Yasko Scholarship

Selection Criteria

There is no single definition of a Hesburgh-Yusko scholar. Our current scholars are physicists and filmmakers, social activists and researchers, writers and business consultants. What do they have in common? They are intellectually curious, driven, and creative; they are dynamic young leaders with a passionate commitment to making the world a better place.

All candidates for our Program are evaluated according to four criteria:

DEMONSTRATED LEADERSHIP ABILITY

Hesburgh-Yusko scholars have the potential to produce great and beneficial change in the University, the nation, and the world. We are looking for intellectually versatile students who are capable of leading with confidence and humility. We believe leadership is best manifested in the embodiment of vision and action.

DISTINGUISHED ACADEMIC ACCOMPLISHMENT

Hesburgh-Yusko scholars care about exploring ideas and engaging in meaningful and productive dialogue. They demonstrate significant achievement in the classroom, but their motivation for academic success stems from a true passion for learning and the discovery process.

SINCERE COMMITMENT TO SERVICE

Hesburgh-Yusko scholars are driven by a genuine desire to make a positive impact on the world around them. Successful candidates will have a generous spirit and a worldview that is oriented toward serving others.

EXEMPLARY MORAL CHARACTER

Hesburgh-Yusko scholars demonstrate strongly developed moral principles— they are guided by their beliefs about right and wrong, good and evil, justice and injustice. They are sincere in their convictions, and they are respected among their peers as people of kindness, integrity, courage, and faith.
