Endowing a Student Scholarship: Arcadia University must ensure that we make our life-changing education available to those who can most benefit from it. More than 60 percent of our students demonstrate outstanding achievement and are recognized with some degree of merit aid. More than 95 percent of our full-time undergraduate students depend on scholarships and grants. By endowing a scholarship, you can help Arcadia continue to attract students of great potential and achievement, designate it for a particular department, or establish a Legacy Scholarship to benefit children of other alumni.
Endowing a Faculty Position: The quality of our education relies on the quality of our faculty. At Arcadia University, our faculty members—not graduate students—teach our classes. To maintain our close connection between students and teachers, we must continue to recruit more outstanding faculty. Named endowed professorships are among the highest honors we can bestow upon our most distinguished faculty, and they help us recruit and retain the finest teachers for our students. The University has benefited from generous gifts for a visiting professor, faculty research, and artist presentations, but we must make these programs permanent through named endowments.
