Pier Giorgio Frassati
This devout young Italian actually experienced failure during his education: Although he was initially homeschooled, he moved into mainstream education where he struggled with his Latin exams, requiring him to twice be sent to a school run by Jesuit Fathers -- a blessing in disguise that helped strengthen his spiritual life even further. Although he went on to study mining engineering, he died before completing his degree. It was awarded to him posthumously.
