Support Students

Southern has come a long way from its roots as a two-year teacher training school in downtown New Haven back in 1893. As we celebrate the past and look to the future, there has never been a better time for you to help advance our time-honored commitment to student success!

Gifts to the Southern Scholarship Fund provide an immediate impact to current Southern students in need if financial aid. In 2020, over 1,800 students required financial aid from the University, and that need continues to grow. Gifts to the Southern Scholarship Fund offer essential support to students that allow them to continue their Southern education and fulfill their dream of a college degree.
