W. Scott McIntyre

This scholarship award is in memory of W. Scott McIntyre, who received his business degree from the University of San Diego. McIntyre was very interested in real estate and finance, however, he maintained a passion for education and those involved in furthering their goals through education. Despite an untimely death, his passion and generosity are recognized through this scholarship program named in his honor. The scholarship will be awarded to qualified students who share a similar passion for learning and are enrolled in one of the graduate programs in the School of Leadership and Education Sciences.
