FUNDING GOAL - $3,500

About the projectThe McQuaid Scholarship Fund was established in July 2000 through the generosity of the Delta Upsilon International Fraternity as well as many appreciative alumni and chapters. This scholarship is a tribute to James D. McQuaid, Chicago '60, for his service and contributions to Delta Upsilon over the past six years when he served as President of the International Fraternity and as an Advisor to the Chicago Chapter. Brother McQuaid has given generously of his time, his experience and his resources to advance the mission and principles of the Fraternity. Delta Upsilon Educational Foundation currently awards up to a total of ten (10) undergraduate  and graduate scholarships of $1,000 each academic year. 
Please note: Scholarship applications will be accepted beginning January 1st of a calendar year. All materials relating to the applications must be submitted by the following May 1st of the same year. Extensions beyond the deadline will not be permitted.
