The legacy of scholarships and special funds
Thank you for continuing the Alma College legacy by establishing a scholarship or special fund during 2012!
The gift of an Alma College education is something students appreciate while on campus and more as their experience in the world grows. Their parents are grateful as well. Helping a student you have not met is a true testament to your belief in the Alma College experience and our mission, and we are grateful.
