When you make a gift to support financial aid through the Sewanee Fund, you make it possible for a student to afford the Sewanee experience: studying with a world-class faculty in a setting that inspires reflection and the formation of lifelong friendships.
For many Sewanee students, financial aid is the cornerstone of success. Students receive the cornerstones they are given and build upon them, adding blocks of academic success, transformative experiences, and valuable skills. From a stable cornerstone rises a solid formation of achievement and readiness for the future.
When you make a gift toward financial aid through the Sewanee Fund, you ensure that a student’s next step after Sewanee is as successful as possible.
