Our Mission and Who Benefits

The College Club of Boston was founded in 1890 to engage the attention of increasing numbers of college women of the problems in education at all levels. True to the original mission, The College Club Scholarship Fund was established in 1985 to provide scholarships to Boston Public High School seniors to assist them with the financing of a college education.

With continuing support, we continue not only to carry out the mission of The College Club of Boston, but also to increase the amount of scholarship funds awarded each year.

Scholarship History and Current Activity


In the Spring of 1986 the fund awarded a modest grant of $500 to one Boston Public High School senior. Each year the number and amounts have increased. Total awards last year exceeded $36,000. We have begun the transition to multi-year grants, enabling recipients to count on our support throughout their college careers.

Presently, scholarship funds are raised from the endowment income, various Club activities and contributions from members and friends. Gifts of appreciated stock are also appropriate donations to the Scholarship Fund. The College Club Scholarship Fund, Inc. qualifies as a charitable organization under IRS Section 501(c)(3) and contributions are tax-deductible in accordance with IRS regulations.
