A top priority for us at Emerson is to provide potential and current students with the financial aid they need to begin and continue their education. We want to ensure that no student is forced to forgo their Emerson education because of a lack of financial aid. A gift to either an unrestricted or endowed scholarship fund will provide students with access to financial aid dollars–dollars that will open doors and allow them to continue pursuing the dreams they’ve worked so hard to achieve.
Emerson Scholarship Fund
We want to ensure that no student is forced to forgo their Emerson education because of a lack of financial aid. A gift to the Emerson Scholarship Fund will provide students with access to financial aid dollars–dollars that will open doors and allow them to continue pursuing their dreams.
Endowment income is one of the primary sources of dedicated, long-term financial support for Emerson College. In creating an endowed scholarship, you create a lasting legacy with the college. Your gift today will remain in perpetuity and will provide financial aid dollars for Emerson students 100 years from now.
Momentum Scholarships are a powerful way to provide immediate support for students in need. Starting with an investment of $5,000 per year over a period of three years, you can make a life-changing gift that gives Emerson students the momentum that they need right now to start or continue their Emerson education. If you establish a Momentum Scholarship, the value of your gift is awarded directly to students as a scholarship in your name over three years. By establishing a multi-year scholarship in your name–or in honor of a family member, mentor, or friend–you are leaving a long-lasting legacy at Emerson.
Mary Burrill Scholarship for Diversity
The Mary Burrill Scholarship for Diversity was established in 2002 to honor Mary Burrill, the first woman of color to graduate from Emerson, and to promote and support diversity at the College. The scholarship is awarded to students in the incoming first-year class from a diverse and/or economically disadvantaged background.
