25 Years of Celebrating the Gift of Scholarship
In 1987, Fr. William H. Kreutz, S.J., then director of the Office of Admission and Aid, faced a problem: the number of students worthy of scholarship is more than what the scholarship fund can offer. He refused to let go of these deserving students and so he called on alumni scholars and sought their help; for they know how it feels to be on these students’ shoes. It was then the start of a generosity that would span decades and that will be known as the Ateneo Alumni Scholars Association (AASA).

Fr. Bill's Message for AASA's 25th Anniversary
A blessing received – a blessing given. This has been the way of life for AASA over these past 24 years. And so, it is that we celebrate this silver anniversary of blessings this coming school year 2012-2013.
Benefactors have been so good to us. We ask God’s blessing for them.
I am happy that I was able to be a part of this wonderful blessing for others.
We pray for continued success for AASA, its benefactors, and those who shared a wonderful life in the Ateneo.
Fr. Bill Kreutz, S.J.
