New Haven, Conn., June 17, 2021 –   The golf season is in full swing! The Travelers Championship is gearing up and so is the  Albertus Magnus College Golf Classic.  This annual tournament – now in its third exciting year – raises funds for scholarships that transform and empower lives.  In its first two years of existence – including during a pandemic, the Albertus Golf Classic has raised more than $150,000 in support of essential scholarship money for students.  Why this funding is important is clear:  95-percent of the Class of 2024 has received financial aid in the form of loans, grants, and scholarships.

“This tournament solidifies our commitment to not only the success of our students but their ongoing contributions and leadership in the community.  In return, that community and business support to our students strengthens the cycle of success so that we can, together, build our future workforce and create engaged residents,” said Vice President of Advancement Mary Young ’91.
