In recognition of Dr. Kevin J. Manning, president of Stevenson University since 2000, the Presidential Fellowship recognizes incoming freshmen who have the potential to make a lasting impact on the Stevenson community as shown by their commitment to academic excellence along with proven leadership in school-based activities, community service and/or athletics. Dr. Manning’s bold leadership and spirit of innovation have led to transformational change for Stevenson and its community. In identifying Presidential Fellows, Stevenson seeks to recognize students whose campus contributions will be similarly meaningful.
Students designated as Presidential Fellows receive a full-tuition scholarship renewable for four years. Presidental Fellows also receive Stevenson’s Learning Beyond Fellowship, $3,000 in funding for a credit-bearing, faculty-led trip (domestic or abroad) during the recipient’s junior or senior year.
To qualify for consideration for the Presidential Fellowship, freshman applicants must:
All complete applications for freshman admission are read in the order they are received with admission decisions mailed approximately 3-4 weeks after completion (earliest notification date is October 15). All students admitted to the University are then reviewed a second time for the SU Merit-Based Scholarship Program. Official scholarship offers are mailed starting in December.
The Presidential Fellowship Committee meets separately to select finalists. They will consider your admission application and Presidential Fellowship application in their review. Applicants for the Presidential Fellowship will be notified in their official scholarship award letter if they are a finalist. Finalists will be invited to interview on-campus at one of our Future Stevenson Scholars programs, which are invitation-only visit programs for scholarship recipients held on the first two Saturdays of February. All finalists will be notified by March 1 whether or not they have been designated as a Presidential Fellow.
