Why Give to JCU

Giving Opportunities

John Cabot University provides several opportunities for individuals and groups to support the University’s mission to provide an educational experience firmly rooted in the American tradition of the liberal arts and solidly international in orientation.

JCU Annual Fund

Gifts to the JCU Fund (annual fund) are given without a pre-assigned destination or restriction of their use. This kind of unrestricted giving offers the University the most flexibility when embracing unexpected opportunities and facing unforeseen challenges. An unconditional gift allows JCU to maintain its standard and grow by fulfilling the University’s needs and achieving its mission.

Facilities Fund

With some of our buildings dating back to the 15th century, giving to the Facilities Fund helps preserve the maintenance and beauty of JCU’s historic campus. Our goal is to maintain the original character of the facilities while creating a modern learning environment. The continuing evolution of these facilities is essential to supporting our faculty and students in their pursuit of knowledge. Your generosity will help ensure John Cabot’s reaffirming presence in the internal city.

 



Library Fund

The Frohring Library is an essential resource for the development of innovative thinking for all students and faculty members. As one of the biggest English language resource centers in Italy, it provides an intellectual center that serves as the threshold to knowledge and research. Donating to the Frohring Library means improving the educational quality offered by John Cabot University, maximizing the access to databases, resources and contributing to the success of our students.

 



Scholarships

As JCU builds and promotes its reputation as an exceptional American University located abroad, its international uniqueness attracts a multicultural student body that presently originates from 65 different countries. John Cabot University commits to enabling students to appreciate, benefit from, and contribute to the richness and diversity of other cultures.  As part of this commitment, John Cabot University offers a variety of scholarships available to ambitious and deserving students. Scholarships are essential in maintaining cultural exchanges by eliminating the constraints of financial burdens.    

 


 

 JCU Presidential Scholarships are given to qualified students upon entering JCU who have demonstrated academic achievement, good character and expressed interest in gaining a unique university experience at John Cabot.

The John Cabot University Dean's List Scholarship gives current JCU Students who have improved their academic performance from the time they entered JCU and are currently not receiving any other JCU-funded merit-based Scholarships. Students who earn this scholarship have demonstrated excellent academic performance in their studies by making the Dean's List.

JCU Assistance Grants give students financial assistance when a legitimate need for aid has been demonstrated.

The Italian Merit Scholarship provides financial aid for deserving Italian students with consideration of their academic merit, extracurricular activities and financial need.
