Hoover Langdon Scholarship

About the Award 

Each fall, the Alumni Association awards these scholarships on the basis of financial need, academic achievement and community service. The endowment began in 1954 with the merger of the Hoover Fund and the William Langdon Fund. This year’s awards are supported by a generous gift from the College Futures Foundation.
