MacAllister-Yersin Full Tuition Scholarship

The MacAllister-Yersin Scholarship
is a joint scholarship program providing full tuition to the selected recipient. Pershing MacAllister, a 1940 graduate of Carroll University, is a longtime and generous supporter of Carroll University. He has served on the board of trustees since 1963 and was the board’s chairman from 1977-1994.

Adolph and Mary Yersin, and their son William ’63, wanted to provide an opportunity for a financially strapped and academically qualified applicant to earn a college degree. The motivation to help someone in the same circumstances they faced prompted the contribution to the scholarship program. William remains an active alumnus and continues to help support worthy students at his alma mater.

Amount of Scholarship
The recipient of the MacAllister-Yersin Scholarship will receive a full-tuition benefit each year for four years. This benefit, in combination with any state or federal grants the recipient is eligible for, cannot exceed the cost of tuition. The recipient is not eligible for additional Carroll scholarships or grants. Finalists (excluding the recipient) will be awarded a $1,000 per year Excellence Award in addition to the merit scholarship.
