Gabelli Presidential Scholars Program
Each year since 1991, a select group of young men and women of outstanding talent and character have come to Boston College to embark on an integrated honors educational experience designed to embody the best of the university and its Jesuit heritage of educational excellence in service to society - the Boston College Gabelli Presidential Scholars Program.
The Gabelli Presidential Scholars Program works in tandem with the University's honors curricula, challenging Scholars over four years through summer programs focusing on service learning, international experience and professional internships. During the academic year, Scholars interact with one another on a weekly basis. Each Tuesday night the Scholars gather to attend a cultural event, meet to discuss their academic disciplines, discuss career discernment or to work on special projects.
These gatherings are intended to nurture their development into the nation's future leaders. Presidential Scholars receive full tuition scholarships and all GPSP-sponsored summer programs are funded.
Presidential Scholars from the Class of 2016 enjoy meeting the donors that have supported them for the past four years at the Wall Street Council Tribute Dinner in April 2016. Scholar alums Patricia Noonan '07 sang the national anthem and Claudio Quintana '16 gave the speech of gratitude on behalf of his class.
