After starting with a network of five schools in 1925, the Sullivan Foundation today partners with colleges and universities all across the southern U.S. to honor students who demonstrate a commitment to service and creating positive change.
The first Sullivan Award was presented in 1890, and scholarships were first awarded in 1934. Since then, more than 14,000 awards and scholarships have been presented to deserving students as well as outstanding citizens of the community.
Today, there are three steps to get plugged in as a Sullivan school:
- Attend a Training: All of our events are open to any school to participate.
- Become an Award School: To officially partner, offer our award at graduation.
- Become a Fellows School: Offer to run the Sullivan Fellows program on campus.
