President's Scholarship Gala

As an annul fundraiser, the President's Scholarship Gala brings awareness and support for under-represented students by helping Philander Smith College to provide them with scholarships. A top level sponsorship package will create internships, mentoring, enrichment programs, enhanced curriculum as well as other much needed resources for our students. When you support Philander FORWARD at this event, you help deserving scholars achieve their big dreams of a college education and the promise of a fulfilling career.
