Students at Hamline University come from a wide range of backgrounds and
perspectives to receive a challenging education, while cultivating a
sense of civic responsibility, social justice, inclusive leadership, and
They carry these lessons with them long after they receive their
diplomas. A Hamline education gives our talented students the tools they
need to strengthen the communities around them, and to succeed in
whatever professional environment they choose. Each gift to Hamline
supports fundamental aspects of that education, from student-faculty
research collaborations to study abroad semesters to scholarships that
ensure access for deserving students.

growing field of international business.
Chris Montana JD ’13
After a brief – but prominent – time spent working in politics, Chris
decided to go to law school. Hamline was his choice, and Hamline Law
donors supported him in his studies with a Presidential Scholarship.
Lauren Howe ’11
Lauren's Presidential Scholarship made an education at Hamline possible.
Her scholarship helped her excel in and out of the classroom because
she didn’t have to worry about balancing a full-time work schedule while
being a student.
