Adopt-a-Scholar Program

Did you know Emory offers its alumni the chance to help academically gifted students financially support their Emory career?

The program offers the ability for a more personalized scholarship by allowing donors to name their scholarship and by “providing the opportunity to cultivate personal relationships and become actively involved in the life of their adopted scholar.”

Lisette Siegel 80C and Hank Siegel 80B are contributors to the program and lend their financial support to current Emory students. As they describe,”It would have been a shame to have these students attend another institution because they could not afford Emory.  I have no doubt that these students will become leaders in our world and will create positive influences as they carry the Emory legacy with them.”

To be in the program donors must commit a minimum amount of $2500 a year for the student’s time at Emory.

The University makes becoming involved with the program easy. Just contact the Emory Office of Annual Giving for more information.
