Thanks a Million, Fr. Don
In 2004 an anonymous alumnus and his wife made a very generous gift to establish the Fr. Don Talafous Endowed Scholarship Fund. The fund provides scholarships to Johnnies with financial need who contribute to the cultural, geographic and ethnic diversity of our student body.
The Frey Foundation made a $2.5 million challenge grant to SJU’s FirstGen Scholarship Program. “Our family foundation is delighted to be able to make this leadership gift, and we are certain that others will join in to create a large-enough fund to make an education at SJU a reality for a good number of first-generation students,” says former Regent Jim Frey '78.
