GraduateWe always hear that Medaille's small high touch environment is what attracts students. We are student focused. We are committed to providing an education that includes an orientation to the community in which our students live. For many Medaille students, a college education would be impossible without financial assistance. For others, financial aid means more time focusing on academic preparation and less time at a part time job trying to fund their education.

Currently 100% of our undergraduate student body at the Buffalo campus receives financial assistance. Medaille distributes over $10,000,000 annually to students on a merit and/or need basis. Additionally, endowments generated $36,600 in 2009-2010 which was also distributed to students.

Adult students face an even larger challenge – income from full-time employment often disqualifies many students from receiving traditional aid packages. Endowed scholarship funds for adult learners make it possible for Medaille to assist more people in our community as they work to improve their lives through higher education.

How to Establish a New Scholarship at Medaille

There are three very flexible ways to establish scholarship funds.

Commencement graduatesEndowed Scholarship
A gift (minimum $25,000) to be invested with scholarship monies distributed on the fund’s interest or donations can be made over a period of years to establish a fully endowed scholarship. Until the funding minimum is reached disbursements would be made with an additional donation that would pass through to the student beneficiary in the spirit in which the scholarship is established.

Multiple Years Scholarship
A gift (of any size) to be given as scholarship repeated as often as the donor desires and will then be retired.

One Time Scholarship
A one-time gift (of any size) to be given as scholarship in the year the gift is given.

I'm grateful for the education I've received.

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
