"The goal is to open Lehigh’s doors to talented women, to create new learning opportunities, and to remove any barriers they may face so that they can achieve their highest aspirations.” –Joseph J. Helble ’82, President
About the Women of Lehigh Scholarship Fund
One of the ways to support Soaring Together is with a gift of any size to the Women of Lehigh Scholarship Fund. These gifts are put toward scholarships and financial aid, opening doors for more women to attend Lehigh.
Support for the Women of Lehigh Scholarship Fund counts toward the $50 million Soaring Together fundraising goal and participation in the Lehigh Fund. The Lehigh Fund, which brings together thousands of alumni, parents, and friends each year to collectively support the university’s highest priorities, is used to bolster Lehigh’s scholarship and financial aid budget.
A Legacy of Impact
Soaring Together celebrates the grit and spirit of the first women who took classes at an all-male Lehigh back in 1902, the first women graduate students accepted in 1918, and the first 169 female undergraduate students, whom the Board of Trustees voted to admit on May 29, 1970.
All of these women arrived on South Mountain ready to break down barriers. Their presence at Lehigh forever transformed the university and contributed to its strength and promise. Beyond campus, their impact — in their careers and in their communities — has been tremendous.
Soaring Together is an exceptional way to recognize the trailblazing women of Lehigh and their impact, while supporting the success of the Lehigh women of today and tomorrow.
When you support Lehigh women now, during the Soaring Together milestone celebration, you are honoring their tenacity and achievements. You are also helping to ensure future generations of women will reach their full potential.
Your generosity is not only a life-changing investment in an individual student or faculty member, it is also an investment in the impact of Lehigh women in our world.
