Support Solutions Scholars


Today’s big problems (air quality, health care, human rights, poverty) require solutions from a variety of academic perspectives. Students in Solutions Scholars take a two-year deep dive in course instruction, experiential learning, research and internship experiences as they learn to collaborate with faculty and students from a variety of academic disciplines.

Start a Scholarship

When you give scholarship support, you play a vital role in helping a student pursue his or her academic goals who might not otherwise be able to attend college. You can give in any amount you wish.  Gifts at the $1,000 level include awarding the scholarship in your name (or any other you wish), a profile of your recipient at the outset of the academic year and an invitation to attend our annual scholarship gathering where you will meet your recipient in person.
