The experience of a Saint Peter’s University education is transformative for students, but for most, graduating is not possible without financial assistance.

Financial aid is granted to 97 percent of full-time students in need at the University. By designating your gift to any number of annual scholarships, or creating a new annual scholarship, you are ensuring that financial constraints do not prevent Saint Peter’s University students from achieving their dreams.

Annual scholarships are awarded to students after the full gift is made to the University. The money is not invested, allowing for immediacy and student needs to be fulfilled more quickly than that of an endowed scholarship. The annual scholarship program offers students aid that is critical to their success, while honoring the life or memory of a person, company or foundation that the scholarship is named for.

To give to an existing annual scholarship or create a new annual scholarship, please contact Leah M. Leto, M.Ed. ’05, vice president for advancement and external affairs, at (201) 761-6110 or
