At Campbell, we believe our students are worthy of a world-class education. The Campbell Opportunity Scholarship Fund provides immediate scholarship aid to students who demonstrate a pressing financial need and who are in danger of not graduating or continuing their studies at Campbell due to this financial hardship. Scholarships are awarded from this fund on a continual basis to ensure that all students will have the opportunity to graduate and complete their Campbell experience.
While everyone has been affected by the pandemic, the situation has had a particular impact on students. Through no fault of their own, our students are facing many difficulties. Looking ahead, we are already aware of unprecedented financial need among new and returning students.
For this reason, we ask for you to consider a gift to the Campbell Opportunity Scholarship Fund today.
Support of this fund will not only benefit current students but also incoming students who have chosen to attend Campbell but now have other financial burdens that could prevent them from enrolling in the fall, such as a parent who has lost a job because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Student need at Campbell for Fall 2020 will be unlike anything we have ever seen. In order to meet that need, we ask alumni and friends to help support our deserving students and expand Campbell’s opportunities to all.
The Campbell Opportunity Scholarship was created in the 2015-2016 academic year because of the need to have additional scholarship money to use in immediate support of students by the financial aid office.
In the first year of the fund, the financial aid office helped 66 Campbell students. On average, 60-100 students are helped each year with the average scholarship amount awarded per student being $2,500. The average amount may not seem very large, but it makes a great impact on the life of the student receiving it.
