Skidmore launches Glotzbach Scholars initiative

October 16, 2019

Upon arrival in 2003, President Philip A. Glotzbach and Marie Glotzbach committed to expand access for talented students from all backgrounds by increasing scholarships and financial aid. Since then, Skidmore’s financial aid budget has more than tripled.

400 gifts = 1 Glotzbach Scholar

For every 400 donors, one new Glotzbach Scholar will be funded by leadership donors. A gift of any amount to the Skidmore Fund — or to any area of the College — will count toward this effort.

"Years ago, if someone told me I was going to play hockey at Skidmore College, I wouldn't have believed them for a second. Because I'm a first-generation college student and opportunities like this didn't seem possible ... Skidmore may have changed my life, and my family's life forever."
