Whether through endowed funds or the annual support provided through the Marist Fund, expanding scholarship assistance to more students is a cornerstone of The Campaign for Marist. Attracting highly talented and competitive students is key to the College's continued success, and making more scholarship funds available will ensure that talent and potential, not a student's financial means, are what ultimately determine their ability to enroll here. Marist should never lose a promising student to another college or university simply because of cost.
So far, the Campaign has seen the creation of 38 new endowed funds and the growth of 37 existing funds, most of which are dedicated to scholarships. Support for this priority has come from a variety of sources to aid a diverse array of students. Alumni and friends, federal agencies, business, and private foundations, all recognize the important role that scholarship support provides in strengthening the College, and all have given generously toward this Campaign priority.
