Ways to Give

Support student scholarships

Scholarship support makes the dream of a college education a reality for over 90% of RU students. Gifts large and small help current and future students to attend and many students have very little family support, making a scholarship the number one barrier to obtaining their degrees. Support current students with a gift to the scholarship fund today.

One of the most integral components to Roosevelt University's fundraising is our General Scholarship Fund, an important resource for our students who otherwise may not be able to go to college. The General Scholarship Fund goes to students throughout all of our colleges and departments across our Chicago and Schaumburg campuses. Your generous gift is greatly appreciated, and no contribution is too small.
