Scholarships

Accessing the Future

Scholarships provide a vital source of support to enhance and enrich the lives of our students. They reward those students who work hard and dream big. They provide access to a transformational education to those who deserve it but would otherwise be unable to afford it. Scholarships allow students to focus on the reason they came to Goucher—to learn, to explore, to challenge themselves and the world around them—and ease some of the financial stress that can sometimes be a barrier to student retention and success. By establishing a new scholarship or contributing to existing endowed scholarships, you are making a Goucher education accessible to future students.
