Scholarship Information & Donations:

The Columbia Alumni Association of Boston Scholarship Fund makes a financial aid scholarship award annually to an undergraduate student from New England. The Association, then the Columbia University Club of New England, established the Fund in 1983 to benefit undergraduate students from the greater New England region attending Columbia College or the School of Engineering, who demonstrate excellence and leadership in academics, extracurricular activities and character. We ask that you please give generously to this cause.

You can make a donation directly to the Scholarship Fund, by bringing to the event a separate donation check payable to "Columbia University" (Please include your address and indicate "CAA Boston Scholarship" on the check's memo line, and the University will issue a gift receipt).
