Without scholarships provided by generous donors, many talented and deserving students would not have the opportunity to pursue their dreams of a college education. Indeed, 98 percent of Mount students receive some form of financial aid to attend college.
By definition, expendable scholarships must be distributed in the year they are given. This makes expendable scholarships one of the best ways to have an immediate impact on the lives of Mount students. You can create an expendable scholarship for as little as $1,500.
Endowed scholarships continue in perpetuity, enabling one or more students to benefit every academic year. Established with a minimum gift of $30,000, these scholarships have the most enduring impact on the College’s future. Endowed scholarships are also an excellent way to honor or memorialize a loved one.
Names of scholarships are permanently displayed on the College’s endowed scholarship wall and are recognized each year in the President’s Report and Honor Roll of Donors. Other benefits include the annual Scholarship Luncheon where donors meet the students who have benefited directly from their generosity.
You can also make a difference for Mount students by contributing to existing scholarship funds.
