Create a scholarship.
Impact a life.

When you establish a scholarship fund with us, you give deserving students the opportunity to pursue their dreams. Whether you want to establish a legacy or honor a loved one, give back to your community or your alma mater, we will work with you to create a scholarship that is uniquely your own.

We provide our expertise to customize scholarship funds with families, individuals, companies, organizations, and estates to achieve their charitable goals and make a permanent difference in the lives of students.

Have questions?
We've got answers.

What is the minimum amount required to open a scholarship fund?

Endowed Scholarship Funds, to be maintained in perpetuity, require a minimum initial gift of $250,000, while Non-Endowed Scholarship Funds require a minimum initial gift of $100,000.

Can the donor set the criteria for selection?

Yes, we will help you develop selection criteria most meaningful to you. Scholarships can support students from particular schools or geographic areas, students who will attend a certain university, or are engaged in a specific program of study or activity.

You may also recommend criteria such as GPA, test scores, work experience, personal essay, or extracurricular activities be given more weight than other criteria in the selection process. The only restriction is that the selection criteria must be objective and non-discriminatory.

Are scholarships only for graduating high school students attending a college or university?

No. You may set up a scholarship for any educational pursuit you wish, from early childhood all the way up to adult continuing education.
