Half of Bucknell students receive some form of financial aid from Bucknell.

Scholarships open doors to the most talented students of all backgrounds — and open doors to lives of unlimited possibility. Donations in every amount help students succeed.

Named Annual Scholarships

You can create a named annual scholarship by pledging annual gifts of $5,000 or more for a four-year period — it’s a great way to honor a loved one or favorite professor. All donors of named scholarships receive the name of their recipient as well as the opportunity to meet the student at the University's annual Scholarship Day Celebration.

Endowed Scholarships

Endowed scholarships last forever and will benefit students as long as the University stands. Most Bucknell financial aid is awarded on the basis of need.
