Trocaire College Scholarship Fund

We are pleased to be able to offer a variety of scholarship opportunities to students based on academic standing, need or both. The generosity of individuals like yourself is recognized every year when students are presented with stipends of all sizes at the Annual Honors Convocation Ceremony. You may wish to name a scholarship in honor of a loved one in the amount of $500/$1,000 per year or it may be desirable for you to establish an endowed scholarship with a minimum donation of $10,000. This allows you, based on return on investments, to grant a scholarship on a yearly basis for an indefinite period of time. You may establish the criteria for the scholarship or allow the college to determine the qualifications for your gift. Contact the Institutional Advancement Office at 716-827-4340 to establish a scholarship fund.


DONATE ONLINE The Annual Reflections Awards and Scholarship Dinner is held in the fall of each year with proceeds supporting the Trocaire College scholarship fund. Individuals and companies may contribute to this event in the following ways: purchase a corporate sponsorship, purchase an advertisement in the event's program book, make a donation, purchase a patron ad or purchase tickets to the event. This event is the college's premier fundraising event. For additional information contact the Advancement Office at 716-827-4340.
