Class of 2005 Endowed Textbook Scholarship

Senior Class Gift archive – open fund

Senior class gift 2005Looking back at our shared college experience, the graduating Class of 2005 agreed that the cost of textbooks was a widely understood, but often expensive, necessity. We know all too well how costly books can be. We have the chance to help future students with that expense with the creation of the Class of 2005 Textbook Scholarship.

This endowed scholarship provides small grants to several students each year who need assistance affording textbooks. Give to this fund!
