    Establishing a Scholarship 

    Scholarships are provided by support from various individuals, businesses and organizations throughout the community, who either contribute money annually to fund the needed support, or whom have established endowed scholarships. No matter where the support comes from, it has a profound impact on our students.

    Endowed scholarships may be set up by individuals, families or corporations through an initial minimum contribution of $30,000 or more to establish an annual scholarship in perpetuity. By definition, an endowed scholarship is one in which the fund principal remains intact and fund distributions are only drawn from the interest that is accumulated each year. These scholarships may be named to honor the memory of someone; identified with a family or corporation or named after a particular cause, need or group that is important to the donor.

    The Foundation Office works with the donor(s) to establish the selection criteria for their scholarships and may rest assured their wishes will be carried out explicitly.
