Help Hampshire Recruit Students

As an alum, parent, or community member, you know better than anyone else what qualities are needed for students to thrive here. And our best students tell us that talking with someone who knows Hampshire made them want to apply.

Message from Director of Admissions:

Hampshire alumni have historically played an integral role in the recruitment of Hampshire’s incoming classes. This year, we are introducing the Hampshire Alumni Recognition Award to further support the students you introduce to the Hampshire community. The award will come in the form of a $2,000 merit scholarship to be added on top of any institutional aid awarded to the student upon admission.

It is our hope that this scholarship program will help foster meaningful connections between the former and incoming generations of Hampshire learners. The power of a Hampshire education can always be found in the exchange of ideas and experiences between one generation and the next. The Alumni Recognition Award can serve as the cornerstone to continue building such meaningful relationships and further establishing the Hampshire legacy.

Sincerely,

Miguel Santiago
