Inspiration for the Next Generation

The award is presented at the University’s annual Founders’ Day Convocation. The award highlights several outstanding students from Gannon University and are presented to graduating seniors for superior academic performance in their major, and for contributions to their department or field of study through curricular or co-curricular activities.
