Establishing an Endowed Scholarship
An endowed scholarship provides financial assistance once it reaches $50,000.
You may wish to identify certain award preferences for your endowed 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 Endowed Scholarship
- Endowed 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 endowed 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 an endowed scholarship.
Donors to endowed scholarships are honored by Baylor through recognition in the Endowed Scholarship Society.
