Scholarship recipients and donors celebrate together at the annual scholarship recognition event. Donors are invited to attend and meet the students they directly support.
Annual & Endowed Scholarships
Scholarships are the heartbeat of the Foundation. Our donors believe in assisting local students to reach their academic dreams through support of annual or endowed scholarships.
A Contribution of:
$4,000 covers tuition and fees for a full-time student (15 credits per term) for the 2013-14 academic year.
- $2,500 can make the difference in a student's ability to stay in school.
- $1,000 provides a solid boost to help a student reach their goals.
- $500 is roughly the cost for textbooks for a full-time student for one term, depending on coursework.
Some individuals and clubs prefer to fund a scholarship each year. An annual scholarship could be funded by an individual or organization with a donation anywhere between $1,000 & $4,000. This scholarship continues to be awarded as long as funds are received each year.
An endowment is a legacy gift established to provide scholarships and grants to students in perpetuity. Endowments support specific academic areas throughout the campus. Individuals and groups have also established memorial endowments remembering family and community members. If you want to contribute to any of these named funds, we can work with you to match your interests with an established Endowment. Call the Foundation office at 503-594-3128.
