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.

skylineAs the cost of providing a world-class education continues to rise, and as federal dollars shrink, scholarship support has become more vital than ever. Both need- and merit-based scholarships are crucial to helping Manhattan to attract and maintain a highly qualified student body.

The College is committed to increasing the number of endowed scholarships in order to keep the cost of a Manhattan College education within the reach of our traditional student body. During the 2016-2017 academic year, our endowed scholarship program distributed approximately $1.7 million in scholarship awards.

Named endowed scholarships provide wonderful opportunities to honor or memorialize a loved one or someone who impacted your life, perhaps a favorite professor or a parent who encouraged a college education. Because a scholarship fund can reflect the insights of a particular donor, an endowed scholarship may distribute awards according to the preferences established in an agreement between the donor and Manhattan. A named endowed scholarship is a perpetual memorial whose fund principal will never be eroded.
