Fr. John Felice, O.F.M. Scholarship honors Fr. John's long time commitment to serving the poor, especially the mentally ill in New York City, and his role in establishing the Franciscan Center for Service and Advocacy on the Center's 10th anniversary. It was Fr. John's vision, as the Provincial Minister of the Holy Name Province of Franciscan Friars, to challenge Siena College to create the center. Under his leadership, the Holy Name Province donated funds to begin the center. This scholarship is based on need and will recognize young women and men who answer the call through the Franciscan Center for Service and Advocacy to serve those less fortunate, thus continuing the Franciscan Tradition that has been an integral part of the Siena experience since the college's founding.
