Support Susquehanna


Set the Course, Lead the Way

Alumni and friends have an enduring tradition of paying their good fortune forward by supporting Susquehanna and its students. Indeed, the generous spirit of the Susquehanna community has sustained and transformed the institution since its founding, and in so doing, helped us launch generations of difference makers into the world.

Gifts of any size are encouraged, welcomed and make an impact!

We're committed to giving promising students access to a Susquehanna education regardless of their financial circumstances. Yet a sobering fact remains: The cost of doing business continues to climb at a time when families are struggling to make ends meet. Donor-funded scholarships help us attract quality students and put a Susquehanna education within reach for many of our families. Here are some ways you can help:

  • $10,000/year for four years supports a scholarship for a historically underrepresented student to study in a STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) field at Susquehanna

  • $5,000/year for four years creates a named scholarship for a promising student in need

Engaged students are more successful students. When students are involved in a vibrant campus environment, they have better retention rates and are more likely to complete their programs of study in four years. Involved students also develop better time management, leadership skills and problem-solving abilities.

Here are just a few of the programs and services you can support to help our students grow and succeed at Susquehanna and beyond:

  • 23 NCAA D-III intercollegiate sports + active intramural and club sports programs

  • Nationally recognized community and service-learning programs

  • Center for Academic Achievement programs

  • Career Development Center resources

  • State-of-the-art research labs and equipment

  • Nearly 150 student organizations + dynamic religious life and social justice programs


Leadership gifts of $1,000 or more support these and other important programs and services.

Susquehanna's award-winning cross-cultural program, Global Opportunities (GO), has created a paradigm shift that is giving students a competitive advantage in the job market. In a time of geopolitical and economic complexity, being comfortable with other cultures-cultural competency-is an essential skill.

There are many ways to show a Susquehanna student the world including:

  • $2,500/year for four years to create a named GO fund

  • $2,500 in support of a GO Short program

  • $5,000 in support of a GO Long program

More traditional experiential-learning opportunities, such as internships and summer research, also open doors to great career paths and graduate school placements. Some examples of how you can help students begin filling in their résumés with work and research experiences include:

  • $5,000 to support a domestic internship

  • $10,000 to support an international internship

  • $1,500-$5,000/year for four years to support summer research
