You make it possible

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 service.

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.

High Impact Learning at Hamline

One of the cornerstones of a Hamline University education is high impact learning, which is a set of best practices internationally recognized for student success. These practices include internships, collaborative research with faculty, first year seminars, capstone courses, and study abroad programs.

Learn about Hamline’s collaborative research opportunities, internships, the first year seminar program, study abroad, and the capstone program. These experiences are supported by generous gifts by our alumni.

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.
