Why are scholarship gifts important? Sixty percent of students come to Morehouse from households with a family income of $40,000 or less. Because of the College's prestigious international reputation, hundreds of highly-motivated and gifted students of color apply to Morehouse each year. The College, however, is facing increasing competition in its efforts to enroll these students as other liberal arts institutions try to entice our applicant pool, offering larger scholarships.
Your donation today can help give Morehouse the edge as we compete for top students, make college more affordable, and navigate the increasing costs to operate. Scholarships fuel the hopes and dreams of the men of Morehouse as they prepare for lives focused on leadership, service, and excellence in their chosen career fields.
- Did you know that 94% of our students receive financial aid from the College?
- Did you know that 60% of students are PELL Grant eligible - this means their families are only able to contribute $0-$5,000 per year towards tuition?
- Did you know that HBCU graduates borrow nearly twice as than their peers at other institutions? Your donation today could help future students avoid that burden.
Many young men dream of attending Morehouse College—some are already students and are struggling to make ends meet. Today you can make a gift to the General Scholarship Fund to help make Morehouse accessible and keep the dream alive!
