Encouraging excellence, increasing access

When you walk Bucknell's campus, nearly every other student you pass has received a University grant. Many of the best and brightest would not be here without it. The power of scholarships opens doors to the most talented individuals of all backgrounds – and opens doors to lives of unlimited possibility.

Endowed scholarships: a top priority

At Bucknell, the most significant scholarship gifts are endowed scholarships. The impact they create, one life at a time, will endure as long as the institution stands.

Whether you endow a new scholarship or make a gift toward an existing one, your investment will make a difference. New scholarship funds raised during Bucknell’s last campaign ($76 million) dramatically increased the percentage of scholarship recipients from 35 percent of undergraduates to almost 50 percent.

Together, we can provide even more opportunities for deserving, well-qualified students.

Why support scholarships?

  • Scholarships help Bucknell compete for the best students and faculty.
  • Endowed scholarships are a wonderful way to honor a loved one or mentor.
  • Smaller gifts can also be directed toward scholarship support.
