SEATTLE – Thea Foulk of Seattle University women’s cross country and track and field and Julia Gorman of Seattle U women’s swimming have earned College of Science and Engineering Bannan Scholarships for the 2019-20 school year.
To be eligible for a Bannan scholarship, a student must be an undergraduate junior or senior with a full-time major in the College of Science and Engineering.
