Annual Scholarship Celebration

2017 Empowering Dreams Scholarship Celebration

2017 Empowering Dreams Scholarship Celebration

The College of Saint Elizabeth hosted its 16th Annual Scholarship Celebration, on Thursday, April 20, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. in Annunciation Center, located on the College of Saint Elizabeth campus. This year, we were treated to the musical talents of the Elizabeth Singers.

The evening included a cocktail hour, program, and dessert reception.

Each year, the College's fundraiser celebrates scholarship and excellence in support of our talented students, all of whom benefit from a valuable education and the supportive environment at CSE.

Given that more than 96% of our students receive some form of financial assistance, this event plays a crucial role in providing funds for current-year students. Your donation is an investment in the future of our students and the mission of our College.

Over the past 15 years, generous and loyal alumni, friends, neighbors, corporations, and foundations have provided more than $1.6 million dollars in scholarship support to our students.

We are so very thankful to our generous benefactors who recognize the challenges our students face in having access to a college education, and who continue to contribute to CSE scholarship and excellence.
