We thank all of our benefactors for your overwhelming support and generosity. Proceeds benefit the Fordham Founder’s Undergraduate Scholarship Fund.
With the Founder's Award, we seek to recognize individuals whose personal and professional lives reflect the highest aspirations of the University's defining traditions, as an institution dedicated to wisdom and learning in the services of others. They are designated Founders of Fordham for their own achievements and contributions to the University, but they stand as exemplars of the renewals of the University in its identity and mission by the different generations of Fordham men and women.
The Fordham Founder's Undergraduate Scholarship is awarded to undergraduate men and women whose curiosity of mind and strength of spirit have enabled them to go beyond the boundaries of expectation.
Scholarship recipients must demonstrate a desire for excellence in all aspects of life through coursework, extracurricular activities, and personal experiences. Their characteristics reflect the qualities shared by Fordham's founding members and are mandates for the development of an ethical society.
