The Case for Financial Aid: Scholarship Luncheon Remarks by Lisa McElaney ’77

Lisa McElaney '77

More than 300 people filled Thorne Hall Thursday for the annual Scholarship Appreciation Luncheon—an opportunity for students to meet and thank the many donors who make financial aid possible at Bowdoin.

This year’s host, outgoing Trustee Lisa McElaney—a financial aid recipient herself—warned that “need-blind” financial aid at Bowdoin is by no means guaranteed, reminding those in attendance that the opportunity it provides requires the commitment of donors and students alike.
