Alumnae and Alumni in Education - Promise for Tomorrow Scholarship

The Alumnae and Alumni in Education—Promise for Tomorrow Scholarship rewards young women entering Notre Dame's Women's College who are committed to the University's ideals of academic excellence and women's leadership and service to the community.

This scholarship honors the work of hundreds of women and men who have graduated from Notre Dame and who now change lives through their work in education.
