Creating Opportunity Since 1812
The Lycoming Fund provides a great opportunity for alumni, parents and friends of the college to actively invest in today's students. Your gift, no matter the size, will impact the lives of all Lycoming students and provide essential resources to:
Enrich the Classroom
More than 1,300 students from 30 states and 12 countries come to Lycoming in search of an outstanding liberal arts and sciences education. As 97% of them receive Lycoming scholarships and financial aid, they are a living display of our investment in their future. Cooperative learning, independent research, student teaching and internships challenge students across 36 majors to embrace learning through both rigorous study and practical experiences.
Enhance the Campus
Lycoming’s welcoming and beautiful campus becomes a home away from home for our students. Single rooms, suites and apartment-style living afford students a diverse residential experience. Our academic buildings combine state-of-the-art technology with a learning environment that facilitates collaboration and creativity. Inviting intramural and recreational fields and facilities contribute to students’ overall well-being, and our varsity athletes benefit from venues that foster high-quality intercollegiate competition.
Enliven the Community
The Lycoming experience comes alive as a result of the diverse interests and talents of our student body. Sharing the gift of music, Tour Choir and band students are ambassadors for Lycoming across the country and abroad. Our 17 athletic teams cultivate school spirit and increase Lycoming’s recognition nationally. Student government, Greek life, community service and more than 70 clubs and organizations give students the opportunity to become leaders among their peers and provide foundational experiences for life beyond Lycoming.
Establish a Named Annual Scholarship
With a Named Annual Scholarship, your support will directly impact a student through the Lycoming Fund. A gift of $2,500 provides a one-semester scholarship and $5,000 will support a student for a full year. Your scholarship will be named by you and will be awarded to a deserving student with financial need.
Support Special Crowdfunding Projects
The Lycoming Community makes a collective difference by funding special projects on campus. Your gift as part of a crowdfunding campaign will make an immediate impact on student experiences beyond the traditional classroom setting.
