Annual Award Dinner Archive

The PBC seeks to fund Presidential Scholarships, which are the University's top merit-based awards for talented students who will become leaders of vision and integrity.  Proceeds from the Annual Award Dinner go directly to the Presidential Scholarship Endowment Fund.  Since the inaugural dinner, over $9 million has been generated for the Presidential Scholarship Endowment Fund. The annual gala is a wonderful celebration of Scranton and an honoree whose lifetime achievements reflect the University's mission of Catholic and Jesuit excellence and service.
