Endowed Scholarships

Regardless of a student's or their family's ability to afford a college education, Rosemont is committed to funding noteworthy students in need of financial support. Rosemont works diligently to explore all forms of financial assistance from private sources to federal or college-based programs. However, the demand for financial assistance exceeds the supply. Your help is needed to enable Rosemont to provide financial assistance to worthy students in need.

A contribution to an endowed scholarship fund can truly make a difference in the lives of generations of Rosemont students. These scholarships are critical to the College's long-range plan for supporting academic merit, financial need and cultural diversity throughout the Rosemont community. As the number of endowed scholarships increases, Rosemont is in a stronger position to compete nationally for the best and brightest students.

Another way to participate with institutional giving is through annual awards. This type of financial support involves allocating the entire amount of your gift directly to qualified students. There is a three-year commitment involved with annual scholarships, grants, or awards and it is a great way to ease into long-term philanthropic goals.
