  • Michael Habermann '15: Impact of Aid

    June 6, 2014

    In the words of one student financial aid recipient:

    Words could never do justice the gratitude I feel towards my donors, but I would like to tell them that I am truly grateful for their generosity, and that their investment will be paid forward.

    Financial aid support is a critical part of the College’s mission to welcome talented students from all economic backgrounds. More than $43.5 million in financial aid was awarded to Carleton students in 2013-14, with an average Carleton grant amounting to $31,848. Donor support for financial aid makes many students’ experiences at Carleton possible.

    Mari Ortiz '13 and Professor Adriana Estill collaborated on a research project that examined how Hollywood and the American press influenced Latina beauty in the ‘20s and ‘30s. This project was one of nine student research assistantships funded by the Carleton Humanities Center, which was founded in 2008 and is now housed in the Weitz Center for Creativity. Initially made possible by a New Directions Grant from the Mellon Foundation in 2005, the Humanities Center’s work is currently funded by a gift to Carleton from David and Marian Adams Bryn-Jones and by discretionary funding from the dean of the college.
