WORCESTER, Mass. -- At Assumption College's 95th Commencement Saturday it was announced that Brian Kelly, head football coach at the University of Notre Dame, has established a $250,000 endowed scholarship for football players at his alma mater.

The first scholarship will be awarded this fall. The College will match the annual football scholarship amount with the same scholarship amount for female intercollegiate athletes.

"Assumption is deeply grateful for this gift," said Assumption College President Francesco C. Cesareo. "Brian has chosen to make the very significant contribution to demonstrate his appreciation for his Assumption education and experience. Football was an important component of his education here, and he wants to support others who can benefit from Assumption.

"The College also recognizes the importance of balancing the scholarship resources available for male and female athletes," Cesareo added. "We're thrilled Brian is offering this football scholarship, and the College trustees were very happy to approve additional and equal scholarship dollars for female athletes."

"I am very proud to be an Assumption College alumnus," said Kelly. "Establishing this scholarship is my way of giving back and saying thanks to all the people at Assumption who taught me, mentored me and helped shape me. This is a very special community with a spirit that helps students thrive in every aspect of their lives."

Assumption College has 23 NCAA Division II sports and participates in the Northeast-10 Conference, with 11 men's sports and 12 women's sports.
