Buffalo Seminary is pleased to announce six new named scholarship funds that will make it possible for more deserving young women from Western New York or the world, to attend SEM.
Since 1851, SEM has provided more opportunities for girls with thoughtfully constructed and specifically tailored education. We are grateful for the generosity of the families and organizations that believe access to a SEM education can change a girl's life, and the lives of those around her.
These scholarship funds were established as a result of Remarkable Opportunities - Campaign for SEM, our extraordinarily successful capital campaign of 2015-16 which raised over $9.2 million; they are an addition to a robust list of 24 existing endowed funds for scholarship support.
SEM will name these scholars for the 2017-18 academic year:
Catherine McLean Eagleson '53 Scholarship
The Gacioch Family Scholarship
Virginia Deuel '33 Scholarship
Jane M. Gold '15 Scholarship
Delaware North Scholarship
Louise Alexandra von Simson Endowed Scholarship
Buffalo Seminary is also happy to announce its new 2017-18 Legacy Residential Scholarship for an outstanding candidate for our residential program who has been recommended by a graduate, trustee of the school, or SEM family. Residential students live in one of the four historic homes next to the school with a SEM staff member and girls from around the region, the nation, and world.
The purpose of this scholarship is to build our SEM community with talented young women who have a connection to the school. To nominate a candidate for the Legacy Residential Scholarship please contact Director of Admission Laura Munson '79 at 716.885.6780 or email.
