Scholarships and Endowments

Contributions made by individuals, corporations, and foundations enable the Division of Student Affairs to create and build endowments — a stable philanthropic investment that yields secure, significant annual returns.

Guaranteeing support into the future, endowments can fund an array of activities, programs, as well as student scholarships. Earnings from the endowment are directed to the donor's area of interest or can be unrestricted.

Endowed Scholarships

Endowing scholarships enables donors to make a meaningful difference for students by providing a continuing source of scholarship funds. To remain competitive for the highest quality students, and to ensure that the opportunity for a quality education exists regardless of economic background, The Division of Student Affairs must be able to offer financial support to students.

You can endow a named scholarship by making a contribution of $25,000 or more to one of the many departments within The Division of Student Affairs. Contributions can also be made to an existing scholarship.

In addition to endowed scholarships, The Division of Student Affairs welcomes non-endowed scholarship giving. Unlike endowments, these awards provide one-time, immediate financial assistance for students.

To make a contribution to the Division of Student Affairs or for additional information, contact Andrea Ward at 713.743.7873.
