Hornet Leadership Fund

The Hornet Leadership Fund provides opportunities for individual students and student groups to participate in or attend academic and professional conferences, workshops, and retreats.

Your gift today will help create broader educational experiences for current Hornets, preparing them to be active, empowering, and effective lifelong leaders.

Give the Gift of Education


Ensuring that students succeed is at the heart of everything we do. One of the most rewarding and impactful ways you can join us in this effort is through supporting student scholarships.

Scholarships not only lessen the impact of tuition and decrease student loan debt, but also allow students more time to focus on their education, alleviating financial stressors, and lead towards timely graduation.

Help our students achieve their dreams by making a gift to the Green and Gold Scholarship or to another scholarship fund of your choice.
