Financial Aid and Professorships

Goal: $205 Million

We want every student who would excel at Kenyon to have a chance to come here, regardless of need. Growing our endowment is a central this goal. With a larger endowment we can make Kenyon affordable for promising students regardless of their financial circumstances while increasing diversity and access. The Kenyon Access Initiative, a $25 million 1:1 matching opportunity in partnership with the Schuler Education Foundation, is a powerful new catalyst for this effort.

We must also continue to attract gifted faculty to the Hill to help create the close connections that draw and inspire students. 

Where Your Gift Will Make a Difference

Each year we turn away many qualified students simply because we cannot meet their financial need. Others simply do not apply because they fear they could not afford Kenyon. Growing the size of our endowment for scholarships will help address both of these challenges and so much more.

Included in this $205 million goal is support for:

  • The student experience
  • Financial aid for outstanding students
  • Student success and retention programs
  • Catalyst programs to expand diversity and foster inclusion
  • Faculty recruitment and retention
  • Endowed professorships
  • Faculty development funds
