Scholarship Tribute Dinner
The College of Mount Saint Vincent organizes the annual Scholarship Tribute Dinner to unite leaders in business, government, and other industries to raise scholarship funds. Since its founding, the College has sought to expand educational opportunity. It serves a diverse population of students who possess extraordinary ability but limited means, half of whom are among the first generation of their families to pursue higher education. The proceeds of the Scholarship Tribute Dinner create life-altering scholarships and financial aid awards.
The event honors individuals whose lives and professional achievements illustrate the values of the College’s mission and the charism of the Sisters of Charity of New York. This year, the College is proud to honor:
