Annual Fund

With your support you can give an AMSU student
“Four Years to Last a Lifetime”

Continuing Our Mission
Since 1855 the Academy of Mount St. Ursula has been educating young women of the Bronx and surrounding areas. The dedicated faculty and alumnae who work at AMSU are invested in making sure students are receiving the best Catholic education. In order to preserve our 162 year mission and continue to offer a quality Ursuline education to our current students, we hope you will consider helping a very worthy cause. AMSU’s Annual Fund helps close the gap between the actual cost of educating a student, $11,773, and what we charge for tuition. The cost of tuition is $8,150.

How Can You Make A Difference?
You can make a difference by helping support the Annual Fund. You may consider making an unrestricted gift to AMSU’s Annual Fund or choose to support one AMSU’s three Tuition Assistance Funds. The Adopt-a-Student Program allows an AMSU alumna or friend the opportunity to help fund a student’s tuition and receive regular report cards and correspondence from a student. The SSP (Student Sponsor Partners) Program only partially funds a student’s tuition. The amount which remains unfunded is $2,500 per student. An Affinity Award allows an alumna to build a bridge between her elementary school and AMSU by establishing a scholarship for an eager 8th grader to attend AMSU. With your help, AMSU is able to offer a bright young woman the financial resources her family needs in order for her to enroll at AMSU and continue the tradition of “Four Year Last a Lifetime!”
