Opportunity Scholarship Fund

President Cindy Gnadinger has created the Opportunity Scholarship Fund to provide support for those students from diverse backgrounds which are traditionally underrepresented in higher education. With a contribution to the Opportunity Scholarship Fund, you’ll be actively supporting a more diverse campus through recruitment efforts and services that sustain an inclusive and welcoming environment. 

The Opportunity Scholarship is a demonstration of how Carroll University employees, alumni, and friends gift to support the success of future Pioneers. This Scholarship serves as a lifeline for those student from backgrounds that are historically underrepresented in higher education and to help bridge that gap. Our goal at Carroll is to create a socially just organization for all and create multiple pathways to success.

Creating an inclusive and welcoming Carroll experience doesn’t stop once a student has been admitted. The Opportunity Scholarship Fund helps with both recruitment and retention of underrepresented students, moving them to graduation from Carroll. Because of your generosity, more students are able to make their dream of a Carroll education a reality.
