Muhlenberg College has a long history of providing a first-class liberal arts education to students regardless of their financial situation. Now more than ever, as the cost of education continues to rise, the increasing expense may place college off-limits to more and more qualified students. As part of The Talents Entrusted to Our Care: The Campaign for Muhlenberg College, Muhlenberg has developed a new financial aid program that can help guarantee an education to deserving students.
Named after the Henry Melchior Muhlenberg Society (HMMS), the College's leadership gift society, the HMMS Scholars program provides an opportunity for annual gifts to The Muhlenberg Fund of $1,500 or more to be used to support qualified students through the general financial aid program.
Currently, about 70 percent of Muhlenberg students receive financial aid from the College. For these students, financial aid isn't a luxury, it's a necessity. When you support the HMMS Scholars program, your generosity allows today's students to benefit from a Muhlenberg education. (Read "A Priceless Gift" by Elia Wright '10)
Members of the Henry Melchior Muhlenberg Society are invited to attend the HMMS Homecoming Reception and the HMMS Reunion Weekend Reception. At both events, you'll have a chance to meet and get to know Muhlenberg's HMMS Scholars in person. You'll also receive College updates from the president and a listing in various publications.
