Support an EphScholar

Give one extraordinary student a Williams education.

Your gifts to the Alumni Fund already help ensure that Williams is able to admit the very best students based on what they might become, not on what they can afford to pay.

EphScholars offers leadership Alumni Fund donors a living connection to these remarkable young beneficiaries. With your Alumni Fund gift of $25,000 a year for four consecutive years (a total commitment of $100,000), you can sponsor a Williams student’s undergraduate education.

The Alumni Fund office works closely with the Office of Financial Aid to match EphScholar donors with incoming first-year students, so that they can build a relationship that extends well beyond the Purple Bubble.

The Alumni Fund EphScholars Program

One of every two Williams students receives financial aid. And Williams supports every aided student in ways that go well beyond tuition, room, and board. No aided student pays for textbooks, for example, and many aided students receive support for expenses ranging from academic travel to summer internships.

When you commit to sponsoring an EphScholar for four years at Williams, you are paired with an incoming first year student and support that same student through his or her entire undergraduate experience. Opportunities for getting to know your EphScholar continue through his or her Williams career.

Like so many friendships that begin at Williams, yours with your EphScholar can last a lifetime.

“Katharine and I are excited to sponsor an EphScholar.  The opportunity to have a human connection to Williams, not just a financial one, adds more significance to our investment in this great college.”  – David ’90 and Katharine Outcalt
