In the 2010-2011 academic year over 350 endowed scholarship funds benefitted nearly 600 PC students.

Funding dedicated for student financial aid will help PC compete with programs that have greater financial resources — helping to attract not only talented lower-income students from all socio-economic backgrounds, but increasingly, students from middle income families who are challenged to pay for private higher education.

By providing more scholarship and grant assistance, PC can relieve students—and their families—of some of the onerous burden of debt faced upon graduation.  This would also give graduates an opportunity to better establish themselves financially and ultimately to give back to Providence College themselves.

Named endowed scholarship funds may be established with a minimum gift of $50,000. Scholarship designation may be based on financial need, disciplinary area such as accounting, finance, marketing, and management or other criteria.
