Endowed Scholarship Program
ENDOWED SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS 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. Scholarships help us attract and retain bright students who might otherwise be unable to attend college due to financial constraints.
Each of our Funds honors the contributions of past members of our community while simultaneously recognizing the success and potential of our current members.
