Raised to Date: $31,024,686
Goal: $23 Million
Muhlenberg has always prided itself on providing a top-notch liberal arts education that is accessible to students from all walks of life. Today, financial realities strain that commitment. About 70 percent of our students receive financial aid from the College, and up to 100 students each year are on a financial aid waiting list because Muhlenberg is unable to meet their needs. The average Muhlenberg student graduates with a $20,000 debt load, despite the financial aid we provide.
Endowed gifts supporting need-based student scholarships will strengthen our commitment and ensure that Muhlenberg remains within reach of capable students, regardless of their ability to pay. (Read "Elite Company" by Evan McLaughlin '10)
