Alumni Council Scholarships
Each year the Olivet College Alumni Council awards a number of competitive scholarships to current students who are actively engaged in campus life, both in and outside the classroom.
“The Alumni Council endowed scholarship benefits my experience at Olivet College in many ways. I am most thankful for the financial help because it eases the burden of college expenses. The scholarship, instead, allows me to focus my energy on being successful in and out of the classroom. I look forward to becoming an alumna of Olivet College because I know the education I receive will give me an edge at becoming a successful professional in my career. Since I have experienced the benefits of alumni support firsthand, I hope I am fortunate enough to grant this opportunity to another future Olivet College graduate.”
