According to The Story of Gannon, 1985, Archbishop Gannon "who had been himself a poor local boy, but one who never forgot the lack of education and cultural advantages that beset him," founded Cathedral College which became Gannon University because he was "convinced that something had to be done for the education of the poor boys in Erie."
Following in this tradition, the Archbishop Gannon Scholars Program would target the poorest students in the Erie Public Schools that have academic credentials to be admitted to Gannon University without a requirement for remedial academic coursework. The objective of this program is to provide added support for students with a zero Expected Family Contribution as a result of the Federal Needs Analysis calculations. According to the government formula, these students and their families would not have the income or financial resources to contribute toward tuition for their college education. It also means that they would be eligible for a Full Federal Pell Grant and a Full PHEAA Grant. Under this Program the Archbishop Gannon Scholars Award, federal and state grant funds are all the student would need to cover their tuition cost each academic year at Gannon University, encouraging commuter students to complete their degree without loan debt.
