Ensuring Access

Giving every student a chance to soar


To prepare the next generation for whatever the future has in store means that every student has access to all aspects of a Union education. Even with significant financial aid, many students find it difficult to participate in programs like study away or unpaid internships. The Powering Union campaign is committed to ensuring that no student misses out on a Union opportunity due to financial circumstances.


The Richmond Fund

The Richmond Fund was created by Diana Gazzolo ’78 and Marcie Harmon-Mackin ’76 to help AOP students with term abroad expenses.

The Gerber Family Endowed Scholarship

The Gerber Family Endowed Scholarship was established by Nancy and Robert Gerber ’76. It provides financial assistance to students facing unanticipated financial hardship or a change in circumstances causing a need or an increase to their aid.
