Application Process Opens for the Barabino Jesuit Alumni Fellowship

Toledo, OH     St. John’s Jesuit is proud to announce the creation of the Barabino Jesuit Alumni Fellowship (BJAF) named in recognition of Mary Ann Barabino, the long-time Director of the 20/20 Scholars Program. In an effort to build a faculty and staff that more closely reflects the diversity of the student population at St. John’s Jesuit, the BJAF will annually seek to identify a Titan graduate who is a person of color and in undergraduate studies with the intention of obtaining a degree in the areas of technology, education, marketing and communications, or other degrees related to the day-to-day mission and ministry of St. John’s Jesuit. Candidates must be able to demonstrate financial need. 

St. John’s Jesuit is pleased to offer the recipient of the BJAF a $5,000 award for four consecutive years of college studies. The recipient of the BJAF will be required to return to SJJ as a paid employee in a position relating to his degree for a minimum of two years. Qualified applicants must complete the application process by January 31, 2021. All interested alumni should contact Phil Skeldon, Administrator of Pastoral Ministries and Outreach, at pskeldon@sjjtitans.org to obtain the form and begin the application process as soon as possible. 

“We believe the Barabino Jesuit Alumni Fellowship will allow us to develop our own,” stated Vice President and COO Chris Knight ’78. With the recent formation of a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Advisory Committee at SJJ, creating more diversity within the faculty and staff has become an important priority with school leadership. Skeldon added “We are confident that this opportunity extended to alumni of color will enable us to better cultivate within.”
