Earnings from the general endowment of the University provide a solid foundation and assure an annual income that benefits scholarships, professorships, research funds, book funds and other designations. Gifts of any size can be made to the University's existing general endowment.
Endowed scholarships make a difference in the University's ability to attract and retain the best and brightest students, many of whom without financial aid would be unable to pursue their educational goals. The minimum gift to establish an endowed scholarship is $10,000; however, to generate an annual payout that meets the University's minimum annual scholarship award amount of $1,000, an endowment of $25,000 is required. It should be noted that existing endowed scholarships accept gifts from anyone who would like to support deserving students.
