The Mount Holyoke Fund Scholars Program

A gift of $10,000 or more can be directed to The Mount Holyoke Fund Scholars Program, providing a one-year named scholarship in the amount of the gift to a student with demonstrated need. During the academic year, you will receive a report about your student on their studies and activities.

Please note that scholarship gifts made after March 31 may be assigned to a student in the next fiscal year.

NEW Mount Holyoke Fund Scholars Match

Thanks to Mount Holyoke trustee and alum Monica Landry ’90, a $250,000 challenge will match, dollar for dollar, all new gifts from individuals between $5,000 and $25,000 made to The Mount Holyoke Fund Scholars Program, beginning on April 1, 2021. (This is a continuation of the generous match offered in January by trustee Bess Weatherman ’82.) As a unique benefit of this challenge, we are offering a special opportunity to support a Mount Holyoke Fund Scholar with a minimum gift of $5,000.

“Your gift matters. No matter how big or small, it all makes an impact in the experience of future generations of Mount Holyoke students!”

Marisol Fernandez ’20 credits Mount Holyoke with the “compassion, relationships, critical thinking skills, and overall growth” that helped her succeed as a student at MHC and beyond. She hopes to eventually serve in a professional role that enables her to provide hands-on support to students who have faced similar challenges - to Posse Scholars, first-gen and low-income students, latinx students, and “any other student who is just trying to find themselves in a big, scary world”.
