Group Scholarships


Group Scholarships allow a group of individuals to pool their resources to help fund an annual scholarship for a deserving student at Lehigh. Here’s how it works:
  • Alumni who are 0-10 years from graduation can provide a $2,500 scholarship to a deserving student.
  • Alumni who are 10+ years from graduation can provide a $5,000 scholarship to a deserving student.
  • Donors may choose to fund a students’ tuition for 1 year at Lehigh by collectively raising $32,500.

    Multi-year commitments are encouraged to support a student for 3 years, and payments can be automated monthly, quarterly, or annually.

Current Scholarships:

College of Business & Economics: led by Joe Ianoale '05

Class of 2013: led by Jarred Barnes '13 and Rosie Roessel '13

Ryan Vernooy '09 Memorial Group Scholarship: led by Bill Mistretta '11, Stuart Schnabolk '09, and Shaun Elwell '09

Gryphon Society: led by Adam Kohn '11, Aaron Wilensky '12, and Sarah Thomson '13

Alpha Gamma Delta: led by Meghan Bowen '11 and Shannon (Patrick) Breitman '10

Scholarship Awards

  • Scholarships will be awarded once the minimum threshold has been reached.
  • Lehigh will identify a student with financial need to receive a scholarship the following academic year.
  • Donors will receive periodic updates from the student recipient via website or email.

Additional Considerations:

Group leaders may restrict their scholarship to a student in a specific major or college, fraternity or sorority, club, affinity, or any other area. In the event that a student matching the criteria is not eligible for financial aid, Lehigh’s Office of Financial Aid will decide who will receive the award.
