The Fr. Thomas B. Steinbugler, S.J. Academic Scholarship is an academic grant awarded to Valedictorians and Salutatorians of Jesuit High Schools who are accepted to the Loyola Schools.
Rev. Fr. Thomas B. Steinbugler was born on the 27th of December 1929, in Brooklyn, New York, to Dr. William and Julia Steinbugler. He joined the Society of Jesus on July 30, 1948 and had his first vows two years later. He spent his regency at the Ateneo de Manila High School, teaching Latin, Religion, and Social Science. He had his theological studies at Woodstock College in Maryland and acquired his M.A. degree in Education in Fordham University in New York. At the age of thirty, Fr. Stein was ordained into priesthood on June 17, 1961.
He was appointed as Dean of Freshmen of the College of Arts and Sciences in 1964. It was his job to help the freshmen adjust from high school to college life and to introduce them to their responsibilities as college students. At the same time, from 1964-71, he was chosen as Director of the College Scholarship Program where he took charge of recruiting talented but financially-challenged students from all over the Philippines, and supervised all admission procedures, entrance examinations, and orientations of new students.
Fr. Stein viewed the scholars as special individuals and knew each of them personally. He exerted much effort to invite friends and Ateneo supporters to establish various funded scholarships and scholarship awards. At present, there are three scholarship endowments that have been established in honor of Fr. Stein, the latest of which was donated by a very grateful community of scholars – the Ateneo Alumni Scholars Association.
