The Alumni Multicultural Scholarship Fund at Fairfield University was established in 1988 and is primarily funded through donations to the annual Fairfield Awards Dinner.  

The Fairfield Awards Dinner -- this year on March 28 in New York City -- honors accomplished alumni, faculty, staff, and parents for their professional achievements and volunteer service, while raising funds to help deserving students realize their full potential through a Fairfield education.  

The Alumni Multicultural Scholarship Fund provides an important source of support for students from diverse backgrounds.  The event has raised more than $18 million dollars for student scholarships since the dinner’s inception.  It is the largest of nearly 50 endowed scholarship funds at Fairfield that currently support the academic efforts of underserved populations and minority students.

Meet a few of our current scholarship recipients:

“I would like to thank you for giving me this scholarship. It really means a lot to me. I would not be able to study here at Fairfield University without having this scholarship.

Armando Mujica ’21

Throughout this period, people where very sympathetic and tried to help in all possible ways. Through this experience, I saw how the University community was one that cares for others. I appreciate the Fairfield University community and I was glad to have the opportunity to become part of this great family.”
