George Floyd Memorial Scholarship Fund

Speaking at the George Floyd memorial service in Minneapolis on June 4, Scott Hagan, president of North Central University, announced the establishment of a scholarship in Mr. Floyd’s name, and he challenged all colleges and universities in the country to do the same.

St. Norbert College is taking up the challenge.

We’re establishing our own George Floyd Memorial Scholarship, in the spirit of addressing systemic inequities and increasing opportunities for underrepresented students.

Gifts will be used to fund the scholarship, which will be awarded to a student (or students) of color with financial need.

We believe, as many do, that every step forward is an important one, and that all of us must do what we can to bring about change. This is not all we can do, and it is not all we will do. But it is one step, forward.
