Friendly Sons of Saint Patrick Donate to Immaculata University

Immaculata University was awarded $25,000 for an endowed scholarship from the Friendly Sons of Saint Patrick to establish the Society of the Friendly Sons of Saint Patrick Endowed Scholarship Fund in Memory of the Irish Souls of Duffy’s Cut. The scholarship is awarded for one academic year.

“The Friendly Sons of Saint Patrick has existed in Philadelphia since before the American Revolution, and we are honored to be counted among the institutions they wish to endow with such scholarship funds,” commented William Watson, Ph.D. professor of History at Immaculata University

The purpose of the scholarship will be to provide recognition and financial assistance to full-time undergraduate students who participate in travel to Ireland related to academic or service programs. The students, who will be identified by campus officials from the Study Abroad Program at Immaculata University, will provide a brief description of his/her experience to Ireland to the Society of the Friendly Sons of Saint Patrick.
