Endowed Scholarships

Gifts that establish or enrich endowed scholarship funds provide an opportunity for donors to create a lasting legacy. Through the generosity of friends, alumni and supporters, The School for Field Studies has a number of endowed scholarships, which provide much needed financial support for our students.
