 Alumni Association Scholarship FAQ

 
What is the Alumni Association?

The mission of the Pierce Alumni Association is to engage and foster strong lifelong bonds between the University and its alumni body. The Alumni Association will work to promote, maintain and establish networking and social events & programs that will represent the interests of all alumni.

Each graduate is part of a diverse, ever growing, worldwide community of nearly 18,000 alumnus. The Alumni Association understands the importance that tradition plays on and off the variety of campuses and values the past and those who have come before us while building for the Pierce's future.

Why do we Award Scholarships?

We believe that it is necessary, as alumni devoted to the efforts of the University, to be supportive of the students who contribute to the Franklin Pierce community. Thus, we award scholarships in an effort to:
1) Recognize students who are leaders.
2) Recognize students who demonstrate a commitment to their community.
3) Commend students who have demonstrated academic excellence.
4) Help in lessening the financial burden for students who demonstrate need.

What Scholarships are Available?

The Alumni Association receives royalties on your purchases from our affinity partnerships, such as Liberty Mutual, that goes to help fund the alumni scholarship program, which awards over $34,000 to deserving students at the College at Rindge and the College of Graduate and Professional Studies. You get great discounts on services and products you use, and supporting these partners helps ensure the future of the Alumni Scholarship program at Franklin Pierce.

The Decision Process

Who is Involved?

Members of the scholarship committee volunteer to review the scholarship applications. The committee is comprised of members and non-members of the board of directors. The committee is chaired by the vice president for academics relations. Each member of the committee reviews each of the applications on his or her own and submits his or her votes to the committee chairperson.
