Support for Middle-Income Families

Affordability Challenge

The cost of a college education has risen much more rapidly than the average family income over the last three decades. Currently, 68% of our students need financial aid to afford the Dickinson experience, with an average grant of $36,898.

Scholarships ensure Dickinson remains affordable and attainable not only for low-income students but also for many middle-income students.

Every Dickinson Fund gift toward scholarships supports financial aid for middle-income as well as high-need families. So if this area is important to you, make your gift and choose “Scholarships” as the designation.

If you would like to explore establishing and endowed fund supporting students from middle-income families, please call 800-543-3809 or email

To reach this goal, we will raise $75 million, with one simple but powerful ask to our donor community: Change a life—change the world.
