When you give $50,000 or more to the Parents and Grandparents Fund Scholar Program, a member of the junior or senior class will receive a scholarship for one year in your name. Your philanthropy has an immediate, lifelong impact on a Dartmouth student.
Meeting Your Scholar
The Scholar Program is as much about fostering relationships as it is a program serving Dartmouth’s crucial financial aid needs. At Homecoming, the president hosts a luncheon where donors and student-recipients can meet. Your Scholar will be encouraged to correspond with you over the course of the year.
The Rotman Society
The Rotman Society was formed in 2017 to recognize donors who have shown their loyal support for Dartmouth students by giving to the Parents and Grandparents Fund, or the Dartmouth College Fund, for three or more consecutive years.
More than half of Parents and Grandparents Fund donors are parents of Dartmouth graduates.
The Rotman Society was named in honor of parents Ida and Murray Rotman P'57 TUP'58 GP'85, and their son, Barry Rotman ’57 TU’58 P’85.
Although neither Ida nor Murray attended Dartmouth, they became avid supporters of Dartmouth College because of the transformational education that Barry received while earning his undergraduate and MBA degrees.
The Rotman family made annual gifts to Dartmouth College for more than 60 years.
