Alumni Memorial Scholars

Each year, we honor the top applicants in our pool as Alumni Memorial Scholars (AMS). This recognition is the highest honor within the admission process, and an indication of an excellent match, both academically and personally, with Colgate.
Beyond this recognition in the admission process, there are many benefits for Alumni Memorial Scholars. Special events and a grant program offer numerous opportunities to further one's own intellectual growth within a supportive community.
Though not a merit scholarship, the award does recognize academic merit combined with leadership and accomplishment in top candidates regardless of financial aid status. Students are selected without a separate application or nomination and are notified when they receive their decision letter.

Financial aid for Alumni Memorial Scholars, consistent with Colgate's financial aid philosophy, is provided solely on the basis of demonstrated need. All other benefits listed above extend to all admitted scholars regardless of financial need.

For Current Students

If you are a current AMS student looking for information about the grant application process or upcoming AMS events, please see the Alumni Memorial Scholars information from the Office of National Fellowships and Scholarships. READ MORE
