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.

skylineReceiving a scholarship often makes the difference between our students’ completing or postponing their education. Endowed scholarships — created by generous alumni and friends — enable Manhattan to assist deserving young Jaspers with their college expenses.

We sincerely thank all of you who fund a merit- or need-based scholarship at the College. Through your commitment, 484 students received approximately $2.6 million in endowed scholarship aid during the 2018–19 academic year.

As educational costs rise, we need to increase the number of scholarships available to current Jaspers. Your generosity will help new generations to earn their Manhattan degrees. Alumni and friends can endow scholarships named for a relative, faculty member or other individual who has had a positive influence on their lives. Over the past year, generous benefactors have launched scholarship endowments such as these:
