We wish all of the students who applied continued success in their academic endeavors. As you know, we had to cancel our golf tournament this year which is the primary source of funding for the scholarship program. We ask that you please consider making a personal or corporate donation, so that the New England Chapter can support the deserving students in 2020 and 2021 despite the current economic crisis. The DonorBox page can be reached through the link below. You can donate specifically to the New England Chapter via the drop down menu on the donation page.

Donate to the MSCI New England Chapter Scholarship Fund!

We are all in this together and appreciate your support. In times of uncertainty these students remind us that the future is in good hands! Thank you in advance for your generosity.
