The Avila student is often carrying a heavy load - juggling 12 to 18 credit hours, playing a competitive sport for Avila and working a part or full-time job. Scholarships provide relief to our students, lifting a weight from their shoulders. With scholarships, our students no longer have to worry about how to pay for college and instead are able to focus on their academics.
With 98 percent of first-year students receiving some form of financial aid – your gifts can make all the difference for our students, many of which would not be able to attend college without scholarship support.
There are many ways to support Avila, and throughout the year we conduct several activities to support the Annual Fund, including:
"I'll forever be grateful to those alumni and
university friends that have made a gift to
Avila’s Annual Fund. The scholarship support
I've received makes my education at Avila
possible and my dream of becoming a
doctor one day possible."
- Austin Armstrong, Pre-med '15
Whatever your ability to give, it is appreciated. Whether your annual gift is $5 or $5,000+ – it will enable hundreds of deserving students to pursue an Avila education and fulfill their dreams.
