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.

Both need- and merit-based scholarships are crucial to helping Manhattan 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 2015-16 academic year, our endowed scholarship program distributed more than $1.4 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 the College. A named endowed scholarship is a perpetual memorial whose fund principal will never be eroded.
