Our Mercy Scholars Meet the Donors Who are Changing Their Lives!

Learn how the Mercy Scholars Program it is helping students have their tuition, books and fees paid for.  All four years.

Support the Mercy Scholars Program

Imagine having high grades, strong conviction, goals and dreams, but it all being clouded by financial fear.  If you believe in possibility, compassion and mercy….you believe in the Mercy Scholars Program. 

The Mercy Scholars Program is an initiative aimed to help close the financial gap for high achieving students with strong financial need. This scholarship program is part of Mercy College’s long-term plan to help more students graduate college in four years and enter the workforce with minimal debt.

The financial gap for Mercy College students eligible for a full federal Pell Grant and the maximum New York State Tuition Assistance Program (NYS TAP) is roughly $3,500 per year. This scholarship covers this gap entirely.

The Mercy Scholars Program stands out, and is designed for student success because it:

  • Provides the balance of tuition, books and fees not covered by a federal Pell Grant and NYS TAP,
  • Awards students in their freshman year and supports them financially, academically, socially and emotionally for four years,
  • Develops a cohort of students to foster community, friendship and support and
  • Connects students directly with donors through organized student-donor events.

Thanks to inaugural donations from the Robert and Kate Niehaus Foundation, Jim and Marsha McCormick, and other generous donors, the first cohort of students will be graduating in 2020.
