Edward R. Leahy Award

In Spring 2022, The University of Scranton received a gift from an anonymous donor that established The Edward R. Leahy Award in honor of Edward R. Leahy ’68, H’01 in recognition of his extraordinary commitment to and passion for helping leaders and institutions dedicated to improving the lives and well-being of people with disabilities and other health challenges.

The Award is given annually to a rising junior or rising senior student in the Panuska College of Professional Studies at The University of Scranton who has not only achieved academic excellence in his or her field of study, but who has also participated in related extracurricular activities and demonstrated the commitment and promise to become a model leader in the field.

The Edward R. Leahy Award will be accompanied by an annual prize of $1,000 funded from the donor’s contribution. The Award recipient will be selected by the Dean of the Panuska College of Professional Studies.
