“Knowing that there are people who believe in me enough to invest in my dream encourages me to unlock my potential, be ever better, and always pay it forward.”
Ian Manzi ’18

University of Rochester students are making our world ever better. They are tomorrow’s musicians, educators, physicians, entrepreneurs, and leaders. Scholarships make it possible for us to attract the outstanding scholars that shape our diverse learning community, and ensure that every qualified student can afford to attend the University, regardless of their financial circumstances.
