Celebrating a Tradition of Opportunity that opens doors to the world:
Investing in student scholarship and financial aid
Many of Fairfield’s alumni were the first in their families to attend college and came from diverse social and economic backgrounds. And many of our alumni were only able to attend our University because generosity towards Fairfield made it financially possible.
Doors were opened, careers, families and life-long friendships launched, all in the spirit of the magis — doing more for others. At the same time, we seek to attract top students through merit awards and other scholarships that will allow them support for academic research and projects. These awards build Fairfield’s reputation as a destination University for students of unique promise and ability.
All across the country major economic shifts have significantly impacted the affordability of a college education. To address this reality, increasing scholarship is a key University priority.
Jesuit education has always been inspired by this vision — to form men and women to become leaders. Providing a world-class education to men and women regardless of their circumstances is a proud Fairfield tradition. It is in our DNA.
Since 1960, Fairfield University has recognized its most accomplished alumni, faculty and staff for professional and personal achievements. We celebrate these individuals at the Fairfield Awards Dinner, which has raised more than $15 million dollars for scholarships to expand access to higher education for students from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds.
