The pay it forward movement is based around the idea that if you receive someone’s kindness, you respond by being kind to someone else. This scholarship was created by a Phi Lambda Chi alum. She too found the importance of the movement, and wanted to pay it forward to her alma mater.
The Pay it Forward Scholarship removes financial obstacles and creates learning opportunities for students. This is a chance for alumni to support the program in honor of how their education at Geneseo contributed to their success. We hope to inspire generosity in others, thereby “paying it forward.” Together, we can create meaningful experiences for today’s students and generations of students to come.
Recipients of the scholarship are encouraged to pledge their intent to pay it forward one day, and also contribute to the Pay it Forward Scholarship.
