Named and endowed scholarships and financial aid funds assist in our efforts to attract students with academic promise and provide opportunities to those with the greatest financial need. By supporting endowed scholarships, donors enable current and admitted students to experience the value of a Cazenovia College education.
In the 2011-2012 academic year, 92% of students who applied for need-based financial aid, received aid through scholarships or grants. Cazenovia students received nearly $12 million in financial support from the institution during the 2011-2012 academic year.
Recent studies show a significant majority of Americans believe that providing their children with a college education is the greatest financial challenge they will face. They also believe providing that education is more important than ever before. Access and opportunity are hallmarks of a Cazenovia College education and we will not define our student body by its ability to pay. Therefore, we consider this need among our highest priorities.
