Baylor Scholarship Fund
For many students, receiving a scholarship is essential to realizing their dreams of a Baylor education. Your gift to student scholarships truly is a gift that transforms lives and helps develop the next generation of our state's and nation's leaders.
Each year, Baylor attracts an increasing number of qualified students and welcomes more than 3,000 first-time college students to campus from across the U.S. and around the world. The escalating costs of higher education, however, are making it more and more difficult for families to afford a quality educational experience.
Baylor has responded with a renewed focus on increasing student scholarships. Students from all walks of life continue to seek a Baylor education and need our help to turn their dreams into reality.
Baylor created the Veteran Educational and Transition Services (VETS) program in 2012 to support the academic success of student veterans attending Baylor, many of whom have returned from deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan.
Resources available to veterans include the services of a Transition Coach, a mentoring program and career development. Help honor those who have served our nation as they pursue their goals of higher education at Baylor.
Cost of textbooks for one veteran $500
Mayborn Museum Complex
For more than ten years, the Mayborn Museum Complex at Baylor has been educating and inspiring children and adults alike. The Mayborn Museum Complex annually offers a range of events and exhibits that expose the minds of young learners to new worlds they may explore as they grow older, possibly even leading to ground-breaking careers in natural science and cultural history.
With its focus on Central Texas, the museum includes walk-in dioramas, including one on the Waco Mammoth Site, and exploration stations for geology, paleontology, archaeology and natural history. In addition, 17 themed discovery rooms encourage hands-on learning for all ages, while the Anding Traveling Exhibit Area accommodates a wide range of traveling exhibitions.
Your gift will support the ongoing impact of the Mayborn Museum as it hosts thousands of visitors each year.
Cost of hosting a school or daycare group visit to Mayborn $80
Cost of a touchscreen display for exhibits $450
Cost of lighting for an exhibit $200
