Endowed Scholarship Program

Endowed Scholarships are a vital part of any higher education institution, and particularly to a small, private institution like St. Francis College serving a student population from the greater New York City area.

At the core of our mission, we strive to offer bright and promising students a top-tier education at an accessible cost.

Through our Endowed Scholarship Program, we continue our long history of providing scholarship aid to students who are in need and deserving of assistance in pursuing their Big Dreams.

Each of our Funds honors the contributions of past members of our community while simultaneously recognizing the success and potential of our current members.

Scholarships help us attract and retain bright students who might otherwise be unable to attend college due to financial constraints.

My scholarship serves as the stepping stone I needed to continue my journey of achieving my dreams; it has already led me to achieve a 4.0!
