GREENVILLE, Pa.—Donors have given more than $1.5 million that have led Thiel College to establish or strengthen eight endowed scholarships in memory of important Thiel College individuals and families.
“Most people give because when they were students, someone supported them, and they want to give back,” Vice President for College Advancement Roberta Leonard said. “When people give to scholarships, they’re really giving to student success.”
Endowed scholarships provide thousands of dollars in financial aid to Thiel students each year. Just last year, Thiel awarded more than $14 million in scholarships, grants and awards. The endowed scholarships carry on the names and legacies of those they honor, Leonard said. Every student who receives an endowed scholarship becomes part of the story of those honored individuals or families, their legacies, and their journeys, Leonard said. Endowed scholarships allow their stories to last far beyond their own lives since students continue to benefit from their generosity and dedication to Thiel College year after year.
“I hope these endowed scholarships inspire students to be philanthropic and to think about about how they might give back in the future to help students in the same way they were benefited,” said Thiel College President Susan Traverso, Ph.D. “Each year, student recipients of these scholarships are invited to attend an event where they can meet and form relationships with the donors who made their scholarships possible.”
Six new endowed scholarships are being made available to students, and two other endowed scholarships previously established have recently received significant additional investments that will allow them to benefit many more students in the future.
