The Matelich Scholarship is University of Puget Sound’s most prestigious honor for students who demonstrate a capacity for a life of leadership and sustained personal growth. Recipients of the Matelich Scholarship enter a promising lifetime relationship with the University of Puget Sound. They continue the legacy of Puget Sound graduates who have undertaken a commitment to make a difference in the world by becoming leaders in their professional and personal lives. As mentors, class officers, donors, members of the Alumni Council and, if asked to serve, members of the Puget Sound Board of Trustees, Matelich Scholars enhance and energize the university in meaningful ways. The award was established in 2010 through the generosity of George E. Matelich ’78 and Susan E. Matelich and is awarded to two students in each entering first-year class.
