Our Class Scholarship
As part of reunion activities over the years, the class of 1966 has endowed a scholarship that helps students make the most of the opportunity to attend St. Thomas. Below is a note of gratitude from a recent recipient!
|“ . . . I am writing to express my sincere appreciation for the great help that I received in the form of the Class of 1966 Endowed Scholarship.
Without this scholarship I would not be able to afford to attend this university and I am grateful beyond words for your generosity and the opportunity that this scholarship provides me. I had the time of my life over the past year and I look forward to three more years of learning at St. Thomas. Without your generosity this would not be possible for me. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and this scholarship helps to ease the financial stress on me and makes it possible for me to pursue my dreams!”
Endowed scholarships increase in size with additional annual contributions and investment income. As a result, more students will benefit from the generosity of alumni of the class of 1966. You know firsthand the value of a St. Thomas education, and the university's goal is to put that opportunity within reach for all academically qualified students. Reunion giving helps the effort!
