The Peter V. Vale Scholarship was established as a living memorial to Peter V. Vale, supporter, trustee and friend of Saint Martin's University. He was a founding partner of Knight, Vale and Gregory, Certified Public Accountants and a supporter of many other humanitarian and civic causes.

Specific criteria for the award of this scholarship is scholastic achievement, leadership, character, citizenship and motivation. Financial need is not necessarily a criteria. The applicant must be accepted into the MBA program and have a strong academic background.

The amount of the award depends on the investment return from a $50,000 endowment established by the Cheney Foundation. The award is for a maximum amount to be applied to tuition and books and is not a cash award. The award can be used for expenses incurred by the recipient during a single, specific academic year (e.g. 2012-2013 academic year) and is prorated equally over the terms in that year for which the recipient intends to register.
