Asa Packer Society Scholarship Program 

Asa Packer Society members may choose to create an annual scholarship with their gift. With 50% of Lehigh students depending on financial aid, increasing scholarship aid is one of the university’s most critical needs. Scholarship support enables us to attract the best and brightest students, some of whom could not otherwise afford a Lehigh education.
A President’s Associates gift of $10,000 meets a student’s financial needs for approximately one semester, while a Founder’s Associates gift of $25,000 meets a student’s financial needs for approximately one year.
Donors have the opportunity to meet and get to know their student.

“I cannot fully express in this short statement my appreciation of your generous scholarship. As a first-generation college student, you have helped to make my dreams a reality. I would not be at this wonderful university if not for this financial aid. I can only hope that I will one day be able to do for a future Lehigh student what Lehigh has done for me. Thank you so much for your support!”

Become a leader in young alumni giving today!
Special giving levels were established for Lehigh’s youngest alumni to become members of the Asa Packer Society. Alumni who make a gift of $250 prior to or during their 5th reunion year can become Young Alumni Leaders of the Asa Packer Society Society, just as alumni who make a gift of $500 between their fifth and 10th reunions can become Young Alumni Leaders of the Asa Packer Society!

The 2015 Scholarship Celebration was an evening of developing friendships, sharing dreams, and bestowing appreciation as scholarship recipients met their benefactors. More than 250 donors and students attended the March 25th dinner held at South Bethlehem’s ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks.

The Asa Packer Society, established in 1967 to perpetuate the philanthropic tradition of Lehigh's founder, engages and recognizes the university's most committed annual supporters. Asa Packer Society members are part of a like-minded network that firmly believes in Lehigh University's values and supports its continued advancement.
