The idea that higher education should be open to all, regardless of background or finances, remains one of our guiding principles.
A college degree is a pivotal factor in social mobility in the United States. Yet, college graduation rates have stagnated for low-income students.
Community Scholarships benefit students with demonstrated financial need with a preference for first-generation college students or those from underrepresented groups on campus.
Open the doors of opportunity for a student with financial need:
- Named endowed Community Scholarship: $25,000
- Named current-use Community Scholarship: $2,000
If you are interested in establishing a Community Scholarship, call or email Jennifer Farner. You can also support this initiative by giving a gift of any amount to the Randolph W. Bromery Community Scholarship Fund.
