Advancing Excellence

By dramatically increasing the number of scholarships funded through philanthropy, the 1789 Scholarship Imperative will allow Georgetown to offer competitive financial aid packages to more students and ensure we fulfill our founding promise to welcome the best to our ranks. The goal is to raise $400 million by 2016 through a combination of endowed and current-use gifts. Reaching this ambitious goal will provide annually 1,789 scholarships in increments of $25,000.
