Alfie Scholars

TRiO Students,

I am pleased to announce the launch of Alfie Scholars at Seattle University. This program is dedicated to making the dream of attaining a bachelor’s degree a reality for transfer students from two-year colleges, to increasing diversity on campus and in the workforce, and to promoting leadership to foster civility in society. The program will be available to students transferring to SU beginning with the start of the 2016-17 academic year and provides the following:

A $10,000 annual scholarship
Academic support programming that prepares students for the increased academic rigor of a four-year university
Opportunities to create mutually reinforcing relationships
A customized curriculum to develop leadership skills
Preparation to become leaders who foster civility in their professions and society
Each year, the Alfie Scholars Program will admit 15 scholars. By August 2018, there will be 30 Alfie Scholars on campus. The Alfie’s Fund, whose mission is to provide support to help change a life, has committed nearly $500,000 annually to fully fund these scholarships and the program.

Professor Emerita Paula Lustbader, who co-founded and directed the Academic Resource Center, the law school’s access admissions program, is working with Seattle University faculty and staff to design this cutting-edge program. Carol Cochran, who has been the assistant dean of Admissions at the law school, will be the Alfie Scholars Program Director beginning Feb. 1, 2016. The program will be housed in Student Academic Services and a public announcement is being planned for early March.

I’d like to extend my appreciation to Professor Lustbader for being the driving force behind this innovative program. She has been joined in this effort by other colleagues who also have my thanks, including Carol Cochran, Nathan Colaner, Isiaah Crawford, Marilyn Crone, Yancy Dominick, Doug Duncan, Genevieve Geiger, Luke Green, Gwendolyn Jackson, Josh Krawczyk, Kevin Krycka, Chuck Lawrence, Dave Madsen, Colleen Montoya-Barbano, Monica Nixon, Jeff Philpott, Joelle Pretty, Jeff Scofield, Diane Schmitz, Carol Schneider, Frank Shih and Mallory Torgerson-Preuitt.

I look forward to welcoming the first class of Alfie Scholars in September 2016. In the meantime, please visit for more information about this great program.


Stephen V. Sundborg, S.J. President The Alfie Scholars Program at Seattle University provides financial aid, supports academic excellence, and promotes leadership and civility.
