Glotzbach Scholars
A Tribute to Phil and Marie Glotzbach

It all started with a promise ...

When Phil and Marie Glotzbach arrived at Skidmore in 2003, they promised to grow access to Skidmore by increasing scholarships and financial aid. Since then, Skidmore’s financial aid budget has more than tripled.

In honor of the Glotzbachs’ 17 years at Skidmore and their meaningful accomplishments in increasing scholarships and financial aid, we invite you to you help continue their legacy of providing a world-class education to the next generation of students with a gift.

As each scholar fulfills their promise, we celebrate our greatest achievements time and time again.
Philip A. Glotzbach

Our Goal

Establish funding for 17 Glotzbach Scholars, one for each year of Phil and Marie’s leadership and increase alumni participation.

For every 400 gifts, one Glotzbach Scholarship will be funded by leadership donors who have stepped up to make this effort possible. A gift of any amount to the Skidmore Fund — or to any area of the College — will count toward this effort.

"I never thought Skidmore could have been a possibility for me. I am proof that hard work does not go unnoticed, and it does open up new doors. Even if people do not have high expectations of me, Skidmore has taught me to have high expectations and big goals for myself. Skidmore is providing opportunities for me that always seemed impossible, including the honor of being a Glotzbach Scholar. "
