Class of 1972 Paul L. and Esther D. Snyder Endowed Scholarship Fund

The Class of 1972 expresses their deep appreciation to Paul and Esther Snyder for their support as Class Advisors during their years at Messiah. Additionally, Paul was a key figure in establishing the work-study program at Messiah and many members of the Class of 1972 received scholarship aid and participated in the work-study program. Without those financial opportunities, these class members would not have been able to complete their education at Messiah. The Class of 1972 would like to extend that hope to future students by creating this scholarship in memory of Paul and Esther.  

Thanks to the efforts of the Class of 1972, as of Oct. 4th, 2022, there has been a total of $32,354 raised towards the Paul and Esther Snyder Endowed Scholarship, and counting!  Please note that any future donations will be matched 100% by the university, as were all previous gifts. 

Thank you for your generosity in supporting Messiah University through your support of this scholarship!
