Giving Back/Scholarship Committee

.

  • The bylaws of the Harvard Club of Sarasota require that the Club maintain a Scholarship Committee to oversee and monitor the Club’s Scholarship Fund, which is managed by Harvard as part of the overall Harvard Endowment.
  • The Club’s Fund was established in 1983 and has accumulated approximately $250,000 in principal since inception. Through sound investing by Harvard, the market value is substantially greater than this.
  • The Fund provides for meaningful financial support each year for one or two deserving current Harvard undergraduate students (whom Harvard selects) who hail from the Greater Sarasota area.
  • The Fund relies entirely on donations from Club Members and other Harvard Alums in our area.

A quote from a recent recipient:

“Harvard is the most magical place on earth-I knew from the moment I felt that powerful energy in the air that comes from having a collection of brilliant, talented, vibrant people in such close proximity. I can already see my friends growing into the leading scientists, activists, government officials, and entrepreneurs of our generation. I am honored to be counted among them and to. have been given the educational tools to make my dreams come true. Thank you.”
