Scholarships and Financial Aid

Scholarships and financial aid are key to providing talented students the opportunity to realize their ambitions and fulfill their dreams regardless of economic circumstances.

Why Now?

  • Gifts for scholarships bring diversity of culture, experience, ethnicity, intellectual interests and economic backgrounds to our community
  • The need is great, and growing: 69% of our applicants now request financial aid.
  • Despite remarkable advances, we still cannot fund all deserving students who apply for financial aid

Campaign Goals

  • Recruit, retain and develop exceptional students
  • Bring 20–25 new aided students to campus each year
  • Create 80–100 new scholarships by 2020
  • Assure that more than half the student body receives aid
  • Admit 80% of each class on a need-blind basis

OUR GOAL - $50 million

Last update: April 2018
