Student success is our primary purpose. Each year we strive to increase financial aid resources, expand online learning programs, and strengthen career-support services to students and alumni. No matter how you contribute, an outstanding population of students directly benefits from your investment.

Our Promise

Every student with the ability to succeed at Mason should have the opportunity to attend and thrive, regardless of financial resources.

This is our promise:


We will significantly increase financial aid resources, opening the doors of our university to increasing numbers of students from the commonwealth and beyond — including overseas, offering aid to students otherwise ineligible for government scholarships and grants.


We will expand our online learning programs to reach those beyond the borders of our physical campuses, giving an even wider population of leaders and entrepreneurs-in-the-making access to a Mason education while also exposing our students to people and ideas from around the world.


We will strengthen career-support services for students and alumni, establishing partnerships with employers to create an even stronger career pipeline.
