As the first major initiative in Dickinson Forward, interim President John E. Jones III ’77, P’11, recently unveiled a fundraising campaign to ensure that every Dickinson student who needs a scholarship gets a scholarship. The Campaign for Scholarships: Change a Life—Change the World, the most ambitious financial-aid fundraising effort in the college’s history, aims to raise $75 million to fund the college’s commitment to providing sufficient aid to meet the full demonstrated need of every admitted student.
“Our goal is to make sure financial constraints never prevent potential Dickinsonians from experiencing this life-changing education. To continue to prepare future global leaders from all walks of life, regardless of their families’ financial situation, we must do everything we can to keep this priceless education affordable.”
“Dickinson was created to be a revolutionary institution, one that marries broad-based academic effort with wider world practice. Our students are imbued with a global perspective and engage in a style of learning that urges them to take an active role in their communities. That mission remains our North Star, the duty that drives us forward. The future of this college has never been brighter. We are a world-class institution, members of a truly remarkable international community. Each of us must show our pride in this place that has shaped us, and we must testify to all we meet about this special community in Carlisle, Pa., that dares to act boldly on a global stage.”
