The Transylvania Fund

The Transylvania Fund, the annual giving program for Transylvania University, supports scholarships for those who could not otherwise afford to come to Transy and provides for the greatest needs of current and future Pioneers. While most of the Fund provides scholarships for students in need, additional dollars provide the university the ability to enhance student programming, invest in faculty and staff, as well as improving the quality of life on campus – essentially our students’ greatest needs.
