Scholarships Initiative

Student support is among the highest priorities ofThe Meliora Challenge.

Throughout the University of Rochester’s history, we have welcomed students based on their talent and academic potential. And when they graduate, they aspire to make significant contributions in their professional fields, throughout their communities, and around the world.

Because of the rising cost of tuition, there are many students who have the dream, talent, and commitment to receive a Rochester education, but they lack the financial resources to turn their aspirations into realities. For these students, endowed scholarships and fellowships can create life-changing opportunities.

Our goal is to raise $225 million for student support. Increasing the University’s number of endowed scholarships and fellowships is critical to the achievement of this goal and ensuring our ability to continue to attract high-performing students, offer a diverse learning community, and reduce the amount of debt students carry after graduation.

University of Rochester students have the potential to become tomorrow’s leaders. They deserve every opportunity to excel and to reduce their concerns about the cost of higher education. Here are two ways you can invest in our students and our future.
