A legacy of academic excellence
In 2007, alumnus John W. Glynn ’62 and his wife, Barbara, made a transformative gift to the University of Notre Dame to establish the Glynn Family Honors Program, building on the foundation of the Arts and Letters and Science Honors Program established in 1983.
Thanks to the Glynns’ continuing generosity, the program has grown to admit 100 students a year, every one of whom is eligible for funding to support original research projects during the semester or over a summer — at Notre Dame or around the world.
The Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., president of the University, has lauded the Glynn family's support of the program, saying, “The Glynn Family Honors Program offers students an education of both the mind and the heart, preparing young scholars whose impact on the world will be felt for generations.”
