Virtual Scholarship Gala 2020

Scholarship Gala

Given the ongoing global concerns around novel coronavirus, we want to do our part to keep our campus communities safe and to contribute to the management of this growing public health crisis. Because of this, our annual Scholarship Gala has been converted into a virtual event.

Scholarship support is a top priority for the University of La Verne. In the current academic year, 98 percent of our students received financial aid. Our Scholarship Gala has helped raise more than $6 million for student scholarships over the years. Through the generous support of donors, our wonderful students are able to reach their full potential and make their dreams a reality.

On Saturday, September 12, the University of La Verne hosted its first ever Virtual Scholarship Gala. The event celebrated community and resiliency, and was virtually attended by approximately 500 guests.

Thank you to all of our dedicated supporters who generously donated to the live virtual paddle raise. Every dollar raised from the event goes directly to the university’s scholarship fund.
