Helping Students Pursue Dreams


The William Hill Kelly, Jr. Scholarship is a need-based scholarship to help preserve the University of Scranton’s mission of excellence and accessibility. The University of Scranton advised us they have numerous students who encounter significant financial hardships during their junior and senior years, causing some to withdraw.

Each year, the University of Scranton will select a qualified, current junior or senior with demonstrated financial need for the William Hill Kelly, Jr. Scholarship. This student must also display exceptional kindness, generosity of spirit, and a genuine love of the outdoors. It is our hope that the scholarship will become a living tribute to Bill and how he lived his life.

All proceeds from the Bill Kelly Jr. Memorial Golf Classic will benefit the William Hill Kelly Jr. Scholarship. The fund is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit. For more information, you may contact our legal counsel Casey Hamilton at 609-424-0173 or email
