In recognition of Marlene Gerber Fried's dedication and service as Hampshire College's interim president, Grace Scott 73S and trustee Jonathan Scott 70F have pledged up to $75,000 to the Community Scholars Fund as a dollar-for-dollar challenge.

Priority will be given to highly motivated students for whom the opportunity of a Hampshire education has the greatest potential to be life-transforming due to circumstances of poverty, community deprivation, family hardship, or other significant challenges.

All contributions made to the Community Scholars Fund in honor of Marlene Gerber Fried will be matched dollar for dollar up to $75,000. (Marlene will be notified of all gifts made in her honor.)
