The Campaign for Ursuline seeks to secure support for Ursuline’s two annual priorities – The Ursuline Fund and Scholarships, while simultaneously moving forward two larger visions for Capital Improvements and Endowment Growth.

“Thank you so much for the scholarship. I am looking forward to the rest of my experience here at Ursuline, and meeting more people, joining more clubs, serving more, and seeing what else comes in the 4 years I have here. I am looking into starting a business after graduating, and also helping the less fortunate. Once again, thank you for letting me have all of these opportunities.”

View remarks from Sheri Sullivan '07, Alumnae Board President and former scholarship recipient, from the 2022 La Fête Royal Patron Party.

"You have no idea how far your contribution really goes. How it multiplies to change the lives of young girls and as they mature into young adults, they then have the opportunity to come back, serve, and create their own ripples in the world." - Sheri
