SSLP Financial and Scholarship Information

SSLP Financial and Scholarship Information

 
Q.  Will the SSLP scholarship affect my financial aid package offered by the University?

A:  The SSLP award may (in rare instances) result in an adjustment to your financial aid package. The University scholarship typically will not be affected; however, the total value of the student’s financial assistance, including the SSLP award, cannot exceed the student’s cost of attendance. In some cases, the SSLP award will reduce or eliminate Federal Work-Study and/or need-based loans (e.g., Federal Direct Subsidized Loan, or Notre Dame Loan). In rare circumstances, the SSLP award may reduce a student's University Scholarship. Athletes on full athletic scholarship cannot receive the full $2,250 SSLP scholarship, and other athletes will need to confirm with the Athletic Compliance Office to see if they are able to receive the scholarship.

Q: Where does the funding for the SSLP scholarships come from?  

A: The strong presence of Notre Dame Alumni Clubs throughout the country makes the SSLP possible in over 120 cities each summer. In addition to establishing meaningful service placements at local organizations in their area and arranging for students to receive room and board at no cost to students, Notre Dame Clubs provide most of the funding for the SSLP scholarships and stipends. If they cannot subsidize the full scholarship amount, they may request assistance from the James F. Andrews Endowment and the James F. Andrews Memorial Scholarship Fund.

The James F. Andrews Endowment and the James F. Andrews Memorial Scholarship Fund were established in 1981 in memory of Jim Andrews, a 1961 graduate of Notre Dame and co-founder of Universal Press Syndicate, to launch and sustain the Summer Service Learning Program. After Jim Andrews' death in 1980, his partner at Universal Press Syndicate, John McMeel, his wife, Kathleen Andrews, and Richard Conklin, then Assistant Vice President for Public Relations and Information at the University, established the James F. Andrews Endowment as a unique and fitting memorial for a compassionate man who studied, wrote about, and acted upon the social problems of his time. Jim was known as a person who drew out the gifts and talents of young people. In affirming students’ sharing of their talents and gifts in service with others, the SSLP continues what Jim Andrews began, drawing out the gifts and talents of young people in response to social concerns.  

Since 1981, the James F. Andrews Memorial Scholarship Fund has awarded more than 3,000 Andrews Scholarships to students who have participated in the Summer Service Learning Program. Kathy Andrews and John McMeel have remained closely involved in the Summer Service Learning Program since its inception, and through their continued generosity, have enabled the SSLP staff to enhance and share this innovative model of justice learning.
