Cheryl L. Cavallo Endowed Memorial Fund

The Cheryl L. Cavallo Endowed Memorial Fund is for upcoming professional year III students in the Physical Therapy program. Applicants must have a 2.7 GPA or higher and a desire to participate in healthcare-related domestic or international mission trips.

Dr. Cheryl Cavallo received her bachelor's, master's, and doctorate degrees from Saint Louis University and was a member of the faculty for 32 years, retiring in 2011. During her tenure, she received multiple awards for teaching and service. Cheryl participated in mission trips to Haiti and El Salvador and was extremely passionate about student involvement in service trips. Cheryl truly saw her profession as a gift because she could serve other people. 

The Cheryl Cavallo Memorial Scholarship was established to reflect Cheryl's passion and lifetime commitment to the education of her students and their preparation in the Jesuit tradition to become men and women for others. She served as the faculty mentor for the Program in Physical Therapy Student Council (now the Physical Therapy Student Association) for 22 years and tirelessly coordinated the Hustle for Your Health 5K event for 11 years. She lived the Jesuit mission every day by giving back to those less fortunate. 

The purpose of this award is to assist physical therapy students in their upcoming PY III year who have the same desire to participate in healthcare-related domestic or international mission trips. International trips must have a focus on healthcare. Belize clinical placement will count towards your eligibility.  Please note that the number and dollar amount of scholarships given will vary.  If you have questions about this scholarship, please contact Jill Fitzgerald at 314-977-8756 or
