Long-time Erie Priest Honored in Memorial Scholarship to Benefit Seminarians at Gannon University
Posted: May 10, 2016
Rev. Norbert G. Wolf spent his entire career as a priest and
educator in the Erie Diocese. A Memorial Endowed "Power"
Scholarship will honor his legacy while helping seminarians
enrolled at Gannon University.
Father Wolf was ordained in 1947 and while at Gannon served not
only as a professor of history and classical languages but also
dean of men, vice president of business affairs and a university
A relative of Wolf's, who wishes to remain anonymous, said, "The
scholarship is a memorial to the many years of work Father Wolf did
at Gannon. Our hope is that it will be helpful to seminarians that
have dedicated themselves to ministry and service. Education
obviously was important to Father."
The Father Norbert Wolf Memorial Endowed "Power" Scholarship
will benefit those students enrolled at Gannon who are studying for
the seminary and will be matched dollar-for-dollar under the
provisions of the "Power" Scholarship Challenge.
The Father Norbert Wolf Memorial Endowed "Power" Scholarship is
among 237 scholarships at Gannon endowed by alumni, parents,
friends, corporations and foundations. Last year, Gannon University
awarded $914,000 in endowed scholarships to more than 413 deserving
students from a diversity of locations, backgrounds and financial
circumstances. Just over 93 percent of undergraduate students at
Gannon receive some type of financial aid.
Endowed gifts to Gannon can also help fund academic programs,
faculty professional development, student and faculty research,
speaker series, study-abroad, mission trips, academic departments
and the library.
