Senior Class Gift
In 2012, the SGI senior senator along with the senior class decided to create the Student Government Inc Senior Scholarship. This annual scholarship replaced the yearly senior class gift as a way to further cultivate the Vincentian spirit within the University.
In just four short years, more than $50,000 in financial assistance has been awarded to over 25 St. John's seniors.
With this campaign, we hope to support even more of our students who have done so much for the university. We want to ensure that students are given the opportunity to complete their education and enter the world as a proud St. John’s graduate.
Please consider contributing to the Senior Class Gift and support the continuing education of your fellow Johnnies'.
