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 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 Christian 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.
Suggested contribution $500
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
Baylor Nursing Clinical Experience
Students enrolled in Baylor's Louise Herrington School of Nursing (LHSON) receive a wealth of hands-on experience in hospitals and clinics, including required clinical rotation hours in community service settings. Many of these promising students, however, face financial challenges in meeting their needs while completing this unique clinical program during their junior and senior years at the LHSON campus in Dallas. Your support will help these students in very practical ways.

Prison Entrepreneurship Program
The Prison Entrepreneurship Program (PEP) helps qualified inmates who are nearing parole learn the skills needed to prepare and implement a business plan. As an outreach of the Hankamer School of Business, Baylor students serve as business plan advisors and support and accompany an inmate through his journey in this life-transforming program. Through PEP, Baylor students provide real-world, values-based business skills so that inmates have the tools, skills and support structure to pursue fulfilling, productive lives once they are back in society. Your gift will help Baylor students continue to make a critical difference in others' lives.
