Scholarship Named In Honor Of Schreyer Dean Christian Brady

In commemoration of his 10 years of service to the school, Schreyer Honors College Dean Christian Brady was honored by the External Advisory Board of the Honors College with an endowed scholarship fund in his name. The creatively named “Schreyer Honors College Scholarship in Honor of Dean Christian Brady’s 10th Anniversary as Dean” will be first given out for the 2016-2017 school year, and more than $185,000 has been raised for the fund.

“So much has happened in our lives in the last decade and the Penn State community has supported us and truly become our family; or rather we feel that we are now part of the Penn State family,” Dean Brady said. “This is an incredibly humbling and generous gift. I am proud most of all that it will provide incredible support for our students in perpetuity. Now that is a legacy!”

Brady has revitalized the Honors College in his tenure at Penn State, as it has won multiple awards and is frequently recognized as a top Honors College. Brady has also increased both scholarship funds and travel grants through the college, looking to create a more well-rounded experience for Schreyer students.

“The members of the External Advisory Board recognize the excellent leadership provided by Dean Brady over the past 10 years,” said Bob Edwards, Vice Chairman of the Schreyer External Advisory Board. “An academic scholarship honoring his tenure as dean seemed the most appropriate way to acknowledge his service given his passion for academics and his commitment to Schreyer Scholars.”

This is not the first scholarship Dean Brady’s involved with. He started a soccer scholarship in 2013 to honor the memory of his late son “Mack” Brady, an avid soccer player who died at eight years old due to a blood infection. In addition to his work with the Honors College, Dean Brady devotes a lot of his time to the cause, and it has created a strong connection with Penn State’s soccer program.
