Grants & Scholarships

From Our President

Paul GerkenDear Fordham friends,

When you love Fordham and all that our college stands for, you want to give back!

That’s what the Fordham College Alumni Association has been doing for over 100 years. Since our founding in 1905, the FCAA has always found ways to support the alums—and future alums—of Fordham College at Rose Hill. We manage scholarships and fundraisers, and offer platforms for Fordham family members to share their thoughts about Fordham’s role in higher education.

I hope you will join us—and please bring your ideas and energy. If you are a graduate of Fordham College at Rose Hill, you are already an FCAA member. So feel free to contact me and learn how you can make a difference.

Thanks for your support, and “Go Rams!”

The Fordham College Alumni Association (FCAA) was independently chartered in New York State in 1905. We are the oldest alumni organization serving the Fordham University community.

Our primary purpose is to encourage strong bonds among the alums of Fordham College at Rose Hill, and to build connections with our future alums, the present-day students of Fordham College.

We also engage the leadership of Fordham College at Rose Hill. Our scholarship program is just one way we support the administration’s commitment to the Jesuit values of academic excellence and the education of the whole person.

If you are a graduate of Fordham College at Rose Hill, you are automatically a member of the FCAA. So please join in the conversation!
