The Joyce Family Foundation Challenge
As part of the Advancing Lives Scholarship Initiative, Albright College has partnered with the Joyce Family Foundation to create the Joyce Family Foundation Challenge, an initiative to establish 20 newly endowed scholarship funds. Each newly endowed fund of $20,400 will be matched by $12,500 thanks to the Joyce Family Foundation.
The Advancing Lives Scholarship Initiative seeks support to educate students of academic promise. We believe that the life-changing benefits of an Albright education must be equally available to talented, determined students across the broadest range of socioeconomic backgrounds. Yet nationally, gaps in college degree attainment and social mobility are growing. Increasingly — and all too often — the economic circumstances of a young person’s family define his or her future. So in an era in which family incomes have stagnated and higher education costs have outpaced incomes, Albright is taking important steps to close the gap and make education affordable.
The Advancing Lives Scholarship Initiative will impact rising sophomores, juniors and seniors. By raising funds to address students’ immediate need and increase Albright’s scholarship endowment, donors can help students now and into the future by making college more affordable and helping them to finish their degrees.
