Scholarship funds are a key component of Queens College’s efforts to help students succeed. Currently, more than 50% of our students depend on some form of financial assistance to help cover the costs of tuition and books. To this end, scholarship support is more important than ever. The goal of the Queens College Foundation is to make obtaining a college education accessible to students from all financial backgrounds. Scholarships supplement tuition costs, allowing students to focus on their education without the added stress of financial burdens.
Donors who are interested in supporting a scholarship fund at Queens College can make general contributions to our Colden Scholars Fund, which supports exceptional students in our honors program, or they can create a personal scholarship in their own name, or in recognition of someone who has made a difference in their lives.
