Establishing Your Endowed Scholarship

You may fund your endowed scholarship at Baylor over a period of five years with an initial gift of $5,000, with the understanding that it will not become a named endowment until the balance reaches $25,000.

Beginning June 1, 2011, the minimum amount needed to establish an endowed scholarship will transition from $25,000 to $50,000.

You may wish to identify certain award preferences for your endowed scholarship fund such as a particular school, academic discipline, department or Athletics. 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.)
