By investing in this effort, you will change a student’s life, you will help provide this transformational experience to someone who couldn’t afford it without your help. But you’ll also change the world, because Dickinson graduates don’t keep the benefits of this education to themselves. They become the doctors and scientists fighting disease; the entrepreneurs and business leaders solving problems and creating jobs; the nonprofit leaders, lawyers—and even the judges—creating a more just and equitable world; the artists, teachers and performers who move us, inspire us and help us understand the world. They join all the Dickinsonians out there making a difference every day.

“Without your support, I would not be able to attend Dickinson. I come from a neighborhood in Los Angeles plagued with alcoholism, drugs, gangs, dropping out and teen pregnancies. I have worked hard to one day become the first person in my family to graduate from college. Your scholarship support is an important reason I am able to afford to leave my neighborhood and study at Dickinson. And after I graduate, my goal is to open a high school in my community.”
—Diego Alonso ’21, a mathematics and computer science major who recently interned with the Campbell Scholars Program, where he helped underprivileged high-achieving Latinx high school students prepare for college.
