For more than a decade, Sr. Margaret did what was hers to do. She steered the University through fundraising campaigns totaling more than $112 million; cultivated a spirit of academic rigor; encouraged students to lives of service; and engaged alumni to assist with internships and job placement. During her presidency, we also witnessed the most exciting physical transformation in the history of the campus.
The Mille Grazie Scholarship (hear the correct pronunciation) was established in honor of Sr. Margaret’s accomplishments and milestone 10th anniversary (celebrated in 2014). On special occasions, Sr. Margaret often used the Italian expression “Mille grazie”— a thousand thanks. The phrase evokes images of our roots and of our patrons: Saints Bonaventure, Francis, and Clare. In Franciscan spirit, the Mille Grazie Scholarship will provide need-based aid, filling the financial gap for talented students who might not otherwise be able to experience a St. Bonaventure University education.
Families choose St. Bonaventure because of its distinctive brand of higher education — and many go to great lengths to afford this experience, which they value so highly. They choose education first, while forgoing other family needs.
For these families and for many others, your gift to the Mille Grazie Scholarship will be life-changing. It will help new students to commit to an academic career at Bona's and will aid in retaining present students facing otherwise insurmountable financial difficulty. In an economic environment where parents and students fear that their college dreams are futile, your support will make all the difference.
Please invest in today’s learners and seekers — and in tomorrow’s leaders — with a gift to the Mille Grazie Scholarship in honor of Sr. Margaret’s leadership.
