Endowed Scholarships

The unwavering dedication of many generous alumni and friends has enabled Manhattan College to safeguard its commitment to eliminate financial obstacles that prevent deserving students from receiving a Lasallian education.

skylineScholarships transform lives. Thanks to generous alumni and friends, Manhattan remains a source of opportunity for all students — regardless of means. For some, need- and merit-based scholarships make the difference between completing or postponing their education.

To better serve these students, we are dedicated to increasing the number of endowed scholarships the College offers. During the 2017–18 academic year, this effort provided 492 students with $2.6 million in aid. Funding an endowed scholarship is a tangible way to provide an enduring resource for aiding students. Scholarships may be named for a relative, faculty member or other individual who has enhanced a benefactor’s life. Over the past two years, generous alumni added the following scholarship endowments to the wide variety the College offers:
