Priorities: What To Support
This fund is a vital source of support for students facing a severe financial crisis such as a medical emergency, death or illness of a family member, or other life-altering experience - including unemployment directly related to the coronavirus.
Your gift to the Make An Impact Fund will provide relief by paying overdue tuition, room and board, motivating them to return, and providing the wherewithal to succeed.
Donations from alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends ensure that students can stay in school and remain focused on their education when no other financial resources exist.
This fund allows the Purchase College President to direct resources to areas of greatest need. This could be student scholarships or financial assistance; technology enhancements, including distance learning and remote student support; and other emerging issues.
This fund channels unrestricted gifts to the College’s priority areas: scholarships, student activities, faculty research, professional development, alumni programs, and more.
With three out of four students requesting financial assistance, privately-funded scholarships make it possible for us to recruit top-notch students based on their talents and scholastic achievement, rather than their ability to pay.

Endowed Named Scholarships

The George Perry Floyd, Jr. Trustee Scholar for Civic Engagement and Social Justice Fund
Established by the Purchase College Foundation Trustees, this scholarship will be awarded to a rising senior, with demonstrated financial need, and who is nominated by faculty and staff in a process that will detail the nominee’s activity, commitment, and leadership in the areas of civic engagement and social justice.
This fund provides support to all areas within Global Strategy and Programs including innovative study abroad, virtual and on-campus co-curricular programming, and The Purchase College Global Scholars. Purchase College offers students the opportunity to expand their mindset and experience a unique global education.
If you wish, you may direct your gift to the Athletics Booster Club or to an individual sport.
