Building relationships with students is the heart and soul of what faculty do at Eckerd College. For some students, though, the decision to return to or stay at Eckerd will depend not only on their sense of community and connection with faculty, staff and classmates, but also on increased scholarship support.
In the summer of 2020, an annual scholarship fundraising drive was initiated by our College Council and the Faculty Coordinating Committee, so faculty can assist and aid students who have been adversely affected financially by the pandemic.
The most effective way to help our students now is to give directly to annual scholarships, and we hope all faculty will consider making a gift. Robust participation will accomplish two things: help students in financial need and send a message to students and staff that we are deeply invested in their work at Eckerd and that we support them beyond the classroom.
Giving to the Faculty Together Initiative is easy, secure and convenient. You can make your gift through payroll deduction or online; details are below. Thank you!
