Scholarship Lunch

Through the generosity of its donors, Eastern uses scholarship funds to make education affordable for all students who qualify. People interested in creating an endowed scholarship and/or increasing the balance of an existing scholarship should call (860) 465-4514 or email Joe McGann at

Endowed Scholarships

The minimum gift to create an endowed scholarship fund is $25,000. This can be donated as a lump sum, pledged over several years or made as a planned gift. Once a fund meets endowed status, a scholarship can be awarded for the next academic year.

Restricted Scholarships

If you are not in a position to initiate an endowed scholarship, you can make a gift designated for a scholarship that will be awarded annually in the year or years following the donation. Restricted funds designated for scholarships may be given in the name of an individual or the donor when given at a level of $1,500 or greater. Gifts designated for scholarships may also specify award criteria, such as major or geographic area.
