The Domenick-Paul Rowe Scholarship

The Domenick-Paul Rowe Memorial Scholarship was established in 2011 to honor Domenick Rowe who graduated from the Templeton Honors College in 2004. As an alumnus, Domenick said he spent “the best years of my life at Eastern.”  He had a curiosity for learning that began as a child and his love of books and great writers expanded during his time at Templeton.  He traveled extensively, was comfortable discussing any topic, and believed in studying the languages of the countries he visited so those he met would feel most comfortable.  Domenick made many friends through his travels and during his years at Eastern.  He had broad intellectual interests and was accomplished in many areas. A man of varying talents, his family remembers him as a “Renaissance man.”  Whatever he did, he did with great passion.  Commenting on Domenick, one dear friend at Eastern wrote “I feel eternally blessed to have been a part of his life and it is an experience that will continue to inspire me—to be a bit more open, a bit more adventurous, a bit more like Domenick.  He was loved by us all and he will be missed.”
  • Eligibility: The Domenick-Paul Rowe Memorial Scholarship is a four year scholarship awarded to an incoming freshman with an interest in studying theology and languages. The successful candidate should also demonstrate a knowledge of and affection for other cultures and a heart for those less fortunate.
