    Now more than ever

    Many of our alumni have asked how they can help students in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak. We’re making efforts to protect our Syracuse community, on and off campus.

    If you’d like to help, please consider a gift to the Maxwell Dean’s fund to support our students as they face unexpected costs related to travel, technology access, health and wellness, and other unforeseen circumstances during this challenging time.

    Scruggs Scholarship will benefit current undergrads

    A new scholarship fund, honoring former history professor Otey Scruggs and his widow, Barbara, will reward current undergraduates for their accomplishments and promise at Syracuse University and the Maxwell School. The Otey and Barbara Scruggs Maxwell School Scholarship is being created with a $280,000 gift commitment from Otey and Barbara Scruggs’s son, Jeffrey M. Scruggs, and his wife, Robbin E. Mitchell.

     

    Scholarship fund honors policy studies professor Bill Coplin

    A campaign intended to raise as much as $1 million in new scholarship funds was launched earlier this semester in the name of legendary policy studies professor Bill Coplin. Creation of the Bill Coplin Policy Studies Scholarship was prompted by alumna Elysa B. Wolfe, a 1993 Maxwell graduate who herself majored in policy studies (as well as political science).

     

    Maxwell's first-ever Huxley scholar has found her intellectual home

    From the moment Brielle Valenza stepped foot in the Maxwell Auditorium as a first-year student, she knew she had come to the right place. "The sense of history in that room is palpable."
