Campion Scholarship Fund at Marquette University

In addition to gathering together, we are also raising money for the Campion Scholarship Fund at Marquette University. Started by alumni from the class of 1972 and family members of deceased classmates, this Campion legacy fund currently provides a partial scholarship to a deserving graduate of one of these Cristo Rey High Schools in the Midwest province. Eligible students will be graduates of: Christ the King Jesuit College Prep (Chicago), Cristo Rey Jesuit High School (Chicago), Cristo Rey Jesuit High School (Milwaukee), Cristo Rey Jesuit High School (Minneapolis), and Cristo Rey St. Martin College Prep (Waukegan, Illinois).

The first scholarship was awarded in the fall of 2022. As of September 2022, generous benefactors have contributed approximately $152, 000 to the Campion Scholarship Fund. The fundraising goal of $1.25 million in donations from all Campion alumni and families will provide at least a partial annual scholarship to one graduate from each of the five Cristo Rey beneficiary schools each year.
