Mary Jo Kopechne Scholarship

This campaign ended on October 01, 2018, but you can still make a gift to Misericordia University by clicking here!

Through this scholarship, established by Mary Jo Kopechne's cousin and Misericordia Alumna Georgetta Nelson Potoski '89, we hope to carry on the legacy of "Our Mary Jo". So often we hear about her death, but it is her life that was so much more. Through this scholarship, Mary Jo can continue to live by providing students with an opportunity to pursue their education.

If you have been moved by the story of Mary Jo, please consider supporting her legacy by giving to her scholarship.

If you are interested in learning more about her life, click here to buy a copy of "Our Mary Jo", written from personal letters and intimate family memories.
