Rochester Area Scholarship

Thanks to our 2 donors who have donated $100 toward our $10,000 match!

Rochester Area Scholarship

Since 1983, the Rochester Area Endowed Scholarship has existed to help make the Wittenberg educational experience available to deserving students from our area. Initially funded by a grant from the Davenport-Hatch Foundation, this endowment awards an annual scholarship of $3,500 (or $14,000 for all four years of schooling!) to an incoming first-year student with strong academic credentials. 

We are proud to say this is the largest alumni-area scholarship that exists as part of Wittenberg’s endowment, and to celebrate nearly 40 years of scholarship recipients, Tom ’72 and Nan Hildebrandt will match any donations, up to a total of $10,000 made before June 30, 2023.

You can help students become their best selves, and help us unlock this generous match, by making a gift to the Rochester Area Scholarship, today! Please join us with a donation amount that is meaningful to you.
