Establishing a Student Scholarship

You may fund your student scholarship at Baylor over a period of five years with an initial gift of $10,000, with the understanding that it will not become a named fund until the balance reaches $50,000.

A student scholarship provides financial assistance once it reaches $50,000.

You may wish to identify certain award preferences for your scholarship fund such as a particular school, academic discipline or department. You also may choose to include other selection criteria, such as merit- or need-based consideration. (Based on federal guidelines, gender, age and ethnicity cannot be used as criteria or preference for awarding scholarships.)

Funding Your Student Scholarship

  • Scholarships may be funded with a tax-deductible, charitable contribution of cash or securities.
  • Matching gift programs are a great way to increase your giving to scholarships. Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage their employees to make charitable contributions.
  • You also may choose to use your estate to establish a student scholarship.

Donors to scholarships are honored by Baylor through recognition in the Scholarship Society.
