Entrepreneur, Industrialist and Educational Innovator

The Schmitt Scholars Program promotes the development of promising Saint Xavier University student leaders, helping participants advance their leadership efforts at SXU and preparing them to make a broader impact on the world after graduation. Schmitt Scholars receive a merit-based scholarship and participate in a program of activities that provide them with opportunities to reflect on and develop their leadership potential.

The program is supported by the Arthur J. Schmitt Foundation, which dedicates its resources to fashioning a better and more humane world. Arthur J. Schmitt was a successful entrepreneur, engineer and inventor who was committed to the education of educated, ethical and spiritually reflective leaders. His legacy has supported generations of Schmitt Scholars at selected colleges and universities throughout the Midwest.

Early in the spring semester of every academic year, faculty and staff are invited to nominate freshmen and sophomores who demonstrate exceptional leadership potential and strong academic performance for the program. For additional information on the Schmitt Scholars Program, please contact Colleen Sehy, Executive Director of Corporate, Government and Foundation Relations at sehy@sxu.edu.
