Young Alumni Endowment Program

About the Program

At the heart of the young alumni* endowed scholarship program is the creation of a sustainable source for scholarships and program support, coupled with an ability to honor the people who have inspired our alumni. The program allows young alumni and their families to create named, endowed scholarships with a reduced starting minimum. These scholarships become permanent funds that can build over time. The program is also extremely flexible, allowing any graduate to start a fund either individually or by gathering together a group of like-minded alumni and supporting a fund together. >More Information and Program Criteria

*Young alumni is defined as any Aquinas graduate age 45 or under.
