Carolyn Gioia Memorial Scholarship

Carolyn Gioia was a 1949 graduate of Saint Louis University's Program in Physical Therapy. Carolyn was always mindful of and generous to the poor, the needy, and the underserved of society.  She worked as a dedicated physical therapist for 45 years and actively participated in various international and national physical therapy organizations. Carolyn was a life-long supporter of Saint Louis University - Go Billikens! She was a member of the Saint Louis University 1818 & DuBourg Society, two giving societies recognizing those that give generously to the University. Carolyn established the Carolyn Gioia Memorial Scholarship to support physical therapy students.  The first scholarships were granted in 2019.

The scholarship is available to professional phase Physical Therapy students.  Students must have a 2.7 GPA or higher and demonstrate financial need.  Preference will be made first to students with a physical disability, then to students going into their PYII or PYIII year of the program.  Please note that the number and dollar amount of scholarships given will vary.  For questions regarding this scholarship, please contact Jill Fitzgerald at  jill.fitzgerald@health.slu.edu or 314-977-8756.
