Classmates of Phyllis Breland ’80 have created a scholarship to support the student opportunity long championed by Hamilton's director of Opportunity Programs, who retired this spring.
Hamilton is a member of the American Talent Initiative, a national alliance of leading colleges and universities that released a new report this week showing the organization is on track to enroll 50,000 more lower-income students by 2025.
More than $1.5 million was raised Nov. 15 for financial aid, earning $1.5 million in matching funds.
The Hamilton Annual Fund again exceeded its fiscal year-end goal, reaching a total of $7.156 million to support College priorities that included student financial aid, digital learning and the academic program, career exploration, athletics, and extracurricular activities.
Hamilton’s need-blind promise is one of the many factors that encouraged me to attend the College. And, Hamilton invests in its students holistically. The financial aid team at Hamilton works hard to ensure that all students’ needs are covered. That is because our needs extend beyond tuition, room, and board.
Kyra Richardson ’21 tells how Hamilton’s financial aid has enabled her to not only attend Hamilton but take advantage of all the College has to offer.
