Scholarship and Financial Aid


Named annual scholarships are designed to offer donors the opportunity to provide scholarship support to deserving students  without establishing an endowed fund. Donors wishing to establish  a named annual scholarship must pledge annual gifts of $2,500 or more  for at least a four-year period. During that time, funds will go  directly to supporting a student with demonstrated financial need.

As with endowed scholarships, all benefactors have the ability to name their scholarships after themselves, the name of ones business or in honor of a loved one. The Development Office will work with the donor to execute an agreement, designed with or without criteria  (stipulations, demographics, academic standing, academic programs, etc.) The program also is open to those who already have a named endowed scholarship and might want to increase the amount awarded to their recipient.
