John Carroll Scholarships

The University's John Carroll Scholarships are named in honor of Georgetown’s founder, Father John Carroll (1736-1815). Although Fr. Carroll was never president of Georgetown University and never served on its faculty, it is to him that the University owes its existence. Appointed superior of the American Mission by the Pope in 1784, Father Carroll saw the need for the education of the young American Republic’s Catholic citizens and began planning an academy.
