George Eastman Circle Scholarships

Scholarships transform the lives of University of Rochester students who receive them, and are crucial for the University's ability to attract and retain the brightest and most talented students, regardless of their economic background. They also reduce the debt burdens of students, so they are free to pursue careers of their choosing upon graduation.

Now, George Eastman Circle members can ensure an even brighter future for the next generation of Rochester students by tailoring their support to create five-year scholarships.
