Celebrate in Style

2023 St. Patrick's Day t-shirt design

St. Patrick's Day T-shirt

Make sure to be on the lookout to purchase your St. John’s St. Patrick's Day Shirt to celebrate the holiday, while also contributing to the Ellen T. Reilly Scholarship Fund! This fund was established in 2000 by Diana Diaz and friends and family of Ellen T. Reilly to provide partial annual scholarship support to first- or second-generation immigrant women enrolled in the graduate division of The Peter J. Tobin College of Business. Ellen, who emigrated from Ireland and had a superb career as an educator, was accepted to St. John’s in the 1960s but could not afford to attend. The scholarship was established for immigrant women pursuing graduate studies in business or finance who might otherwise be unable to attend St. John’s University.
