Please consider donating to support a student from the incoming class while they attend Notre Dame on the Village Scholarship.

The Village Scholarship provides an all-inclusive, four-year scholarship for a young woman of Black, African ancestry with financial need. Donors give a student the gift of a Notre Dame education, preparing them to be the leaders of tomorrow. Our inclusive and diverse student population is the fabric that amplifies social justice awareness and advocacy for all.

We encourage donors to contribute $50 per month for four years to support this scholarship. One-time donations of any amount are also welcome, expanding the mosaic of diverse perspectives.

To join a circle, complete the form below.
