It’s a fact: More than 60 percent of today’s Denison students need financial assistance to be able to attend college. In order to attract the best students, Denison must ensure that each student’s loan burden remains as low as possible — for many, this requires significant financial aid.
We can help. The Class of 1970 Endowed Scholarship is a need-based award that can be renewed annually. We hope that, in time, contributions will grow the scholarship to over $1.25 million. Our immediate goal is to have at least $100,000 cash-in-hand by the Reunion, so the scholarship can start paying out awards in the fall of 2020. A gift to the ’70 Scholarship can be made in honor or in memory of a classmate, a professor or staff member, or some other person who made your Denison experience possible. Denison notifies the family of the deceased when a memorial gift is received and identifies the donor. The fund will be “evergreen,” permitting gifts in memory of classmates who become deceased in the future. It’s a wonderful way to remember our friends.
