Alumni challenge

give button

The Quinnipiac University Alumni Association has initiated a challenge to all Quinnipiac alumni: if alumni give an additional $500,000 toward the Alumni Association Endowed Scholarship Fund, then the University will match those gifts dollar-for-dollar. That's a $1,000,000 increase to this important endowed scholarship!

The Alumni Association Endowed Scholarship benefits Quinnipiac students who carry on their family's legacy at the University. Students eligible for the Alumni Association Endowed Scholarship demonstrate academic excellence and unmet financial need and are the grandchildren, children or siblings of Quinnipiac alumni.

When the Alumni Association Endowed Scholarship increases, more legacy students will receive more scholarship money. This is truly an important project by alumni, for alumni.

We need your participation to make a difference in the Quinnipiac community. Please make your gift to the Alumni Association Endowed Scholarship.
