Donors to The Bryn Mawr Fund have the special opportunity to support the education of a Bryn Mawr student directly. By making a gift of $15,000 or more, donors underwrite a Merion Scholarship and advance one of the College's core priorities: to meet students' needs for financial assistance.
Merion Scholarship donors receive reports on the students supported by their gifts, and those students are encouraged to write personal letters to the donors. Donors have the opportunity to meet with scholarship recipients at special events organized by the Development office.
"The Merion scholarship has given me an opportunity that neither my family nor I ever dreamed possible, and I cherish it every day. Whether I'm learning in class, playing on the soccer field, or hanging out with the amazing women that I've met here, Bryn Mawr is truly my second home. I am extremely grateful to be able to live out my dream here."
- Karina Siu '14, Merion Scholar
