Grants & Scholarships

From Our President

Deb CarusoDear Fordham Friends:

Among the great things about Fordham are the lasting effects our years there leave on our lives - friendships, professional connections and a sense of belonging to the "Fordham Family."

For more than 100 years, the Fordham College Alumni Association has worked toward those goals. Since our founding in 1905, the FCAA has supported alumni and students (future alums) of Fordham College at Rose Hill. We have endowed scholarships and grants for students and we create opportunities for alumni to get together to help each other and Fordham.

I hope you will join us—and please bring your ideas and energy. If you're a graduate of Fordham College at Rose Hill, you are already an FCAA member. So feel free to contact me and learn how you can make a difference. Please like us on Facebook.

Thanks and "Go Rams!"


Debra Caruso Marrone, FCRH 1981


The Fordham College Alumni Association (FCAA) was independently chartered in New York State in 1905. We are the oldest alumni organization serving the Fordham University community.

Our primary purpose is to encourage strong bonds among the alums of Fordham College at Rose Hill, and to build connections with our future alums, the present-day students of Fordham College.

We also engage the leadership of Fordham College at Rose Hill. Our scholarship program is just one way we support the administration’s commitment to the Jesuit values of academic excellence and the education of the whole person.

If you are a graduate of Fordham College at Rose Hill, you are automatically a member of the FCAA. So please join in the conversation!
