The John A. and Jean Quinn Sullivan Scholarship Funds provide financial assistance to graduates of Superior High School majoring in education. The award may be used for the second half of a post-secondary education at the University of Wisconsin-Superior. The Jean Quinn Sullivan Scholarship gives priority to those who express an interest in elementary education.
Contact the University of Wisconsin-Superior Education Department for application information.
A) The majority of communication between recipients and the scholarship administrators will take place via email or other appropriate technology. Recipients are required to have and regularly check their email and notify the Community Foundation of any changes to their contact information.
B) Recipients of DSACF scholarships are expected to acknowledge acceptance of the award promptly. This acknowledgment will take two forms, completion of an Acceptance Form provided by the Community Foundation and secondly, a thank you letter/card to the award's sponsor. The Community Foundation will provide names and addresses as needed. If unable to accept the scholarship, the committee should be given that information and a reason in a prompt manor.
C) Recipients must inform the DSACF of all other scholarship they are receiving. Total awards for any given semester can not exceed the stated cost for attendance at that institution.
D) Recipients must complete enough credits to be recognized as a full-time student in each semester an award is made. Likewise, a satisfactory grade point average (different by scholarship) must be maintained.
E) If the student receives funds from the college due to non-completion of a term or not attending full time, these funds are to be returned to the DSACF. If the college requirements are not met, but there is no refund, the scholarship will be forfeited.
F) The Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation hopes that recipients recognize and appreciate the contributions their award has made to their futures. It further anticipates that, in the years to come, recipients find some way to give back to the community that provided them with these opportunities.
The Sullivan Scholarships were established in 1996 by Ms. Jean Quinn Sullivan. Ms. Sullivan lived in Superior, Wisconsin most of her life. She was married to Mr John Sullivan, the owner and operator of the Sullivan Loan Company. Both she and her husband recognized the importance of higher education and thus created these scholarships to help students of Superior pursue their educational goals.
Awards Given from Fund
One or more scholarships (of about $1000/year), co-payable to the student and institution will be awarded each year. Generally, this annual award is divided into two installments--half for fall, half for spring.
