Scholarships

The Alumni Association has awarded over $40,000 in student scholarships since 1993. The Alumni Scholarship Endowment was established in 1990 with a gift of $5,000 and has now reached almost $170,000. As the endowment grows, so will the monies available for student scholarships. The first awards were made during the 1993-1994 academic year.
