What is an annual scholarship?
Annual scholarships are an opportunity to give a yearly gift to East
Stroudsburg University and sustain our scholarship program. Annually
funded scholarships are those that are funded each year by friends and
alumni. The impact of the annual scholarship is immediate, meaning the
funds are disbursed to the student recipient in the fiscal year they are
received. Gifts made to annual scholarships are not invested, and do
not earn additional income. An annual gift in any amount may be used to
provide a scholarship for deserving students. As an annual scholarship
donor, you can specify the scholarship name and criteria. Annual
scholarships give you the flexibility in cost and commitment.
These scholarships provide the financial

tuition. Annual scholarship funds help ESU attract the kind of student
who can best benefit from an ESU education, but who might not have the
personal funds to cover all of his or her tuition costs.
Why is your participation important?
Alumni and donor support for annual scholarships is critical. Not

has of receiving major grants from regional and national foundations
which consider alumni participation an important part of their
