Introducing The Hope Fund Scholarships Initiative

The HF Scholarships logo_2c(1)Hope students are committed learners preparing for lives of leadership and service in a global society. Here you will meet a few of the young men and women who are shining examples of current Hope students benefiting from scholarships through the Hope Fund. From Trevor’s dedication to swimming, to Tori‘s heart for theater, to Rosemarie‘s passion for student leadership, a new generation of students are getting ready to graduate as agents of hope who live faithfully into their vocations.

Just as these students work to create opportunities for others to reach their full potential, they rely on a community of donors to make a Hope education accessible for them. A significant number of students receive gift aid from Hope College. The majority is need based, and the average amount is $6,500 per student per year. Every financial aid package is made possible through the support of loyal Hope alumni and friends.

To ensure that Hope remains affordable and accessible for a wide range of students and to provide engaging and direct opportunities for you to support them, we are pleased to announce an exciting new initiative.

Hope Fund Scholarships can be created by donors who commit to give $1,500 per year for four years toward direct support of scholarships for students like Trevor, Tori and Rosemarie. Not only will you have an immediate and life shaping impact for students, but you will receive updates directly from them as they grow, explore and discover their calling. This gives you the unique opportunity to see first-hand how your gift is making a difference.
