Regional Club Scholarships

Over the course of the past three decades, our alumni clubs have generously established endowed scholarship funds to benefit students from their varied geographic regions.
Students study in Case Geyer Library.
Club organizations  and club members generously give back.  Whether donating profits from Club events and or making individual gifts directly to the scholarships, their effects are far reaching.  We thank them for their generosity and help in making a Colgate education accessible to talented students who would otherwise not be able to afford this wonderful opportunity.

Make an online contribution to your club's scholarship fund using the giving form.  Make sure to enter the regional club scholarship of your choice in the designation box.
