The Thomas R. Scandurra, Jr. Scholarship Fund was established in
1987 and amended in 1992 by Thomas and Olga Scandurra in memory of
their son, Thomas R. Scandurra, Jr. ’76CBA. It was created to
provide a partial annual scholarship to a full-time undergraduate
student who has achieved Sophomore, Junior or Senior status in St.
John’s The Peter J. Tobin College of Business. Recipients shall be
selected based upon a combination of need and scholastic
achievement and, if possible, a special emphasis upon the student’s
active participation or assistance in the University's Athletic
Program. This is a one-time award for each recipient.
A men’s basketball season ticket holder, Thomas R. Scandurra,
Jr. was an avid fan and supporter of St. John’s Athletic Programs
from his student days until his untimely death at age 32. His
parents established the scholarship as a way to ensure that his
memory will live on by helping others to succeed. They hope that
after graduation the scholarship recipients will consider giving
back and contributing to the scholarship so that future students
will continue to benefit from this generous assistance.
