Scholarship Auction Program

The Scholarship Auction Program is here! Plan out your bidding with a preview of the items up for auction. Special thank you to all of our sponsors that advertised in this year's program.

Auction Program

We are looking forward to our Annual Scholarship Auction, an exciting and fun-filled evening attended by parents, alumni and friends of U of D Jesuit. The sole purpose of this event is to raise funds for scholarships for qualifying students. Our theme for this year’s 46th annual event is “Lights, Camera, AUCTION!”

We are excited to again be back on campus Saturday, November 11, 2017. Every dollar raised at the Scholarship Auction supports the tuition assistance program at U of D Jesuit. This year students will receive more than $2 million in assistance. More than 300 deserving students, representing 33% of the student population, benefited from this assistance. Supporting the Auction helps make their education possible, and we will not be as successful without your contribution. Additionally, every student benefits from these funds as they help to keep tuition more affordable for all of our families.
