A donation of $ 1 million from the Goizueta Foundation to endow undergraduate scholarships will increase access to an Auburn education for qualified students in the Atlanta area.
The foundation’s philanthropic donation creates the Goizueta Foundation Scholars Fund to provide annual scholarships based on need. Administered by the Auburn University Scholarships Office, these scholarships will be available to students of any high school graduate university in 10 Georgia counties: Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Fulton, Gwinnett , Henry and Rockdale.
Received as part of Because It’s Auburn – A Campaign for Auburn University, this giveaway advances Auburn’s goal of creating thousands of new scholarships and helps the university prepare students for a life of learning and success. Auburn’s Enrollment Services Office, which oversees the university’s recruitment, admissions and scholarship programs, is looking to raise $ 40 million in new scholarships through the campaign.
“There is no greater gift than an education, and the Goizueta Foundation Scholars Fund will enable Auburn to increase access to educational opportunities for the most deserving students,” said Cindy Singley, Director of Recruitment university. “We are grateful to the Goizueta Foundation for investing in generations of future students and the impact they will have on the world as a result of their education at Auburn.”
