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.
