Scholarships

Student Foundation scholarships change lives.  Every year, Student Foundation members volunteer hours to raise funds for student scholarships so current and future students can enjoy the Baylor experience.  Through the Bearathon (half-marathon and 5K fundraiser), personal visits with alumni, and other fundraising efforts, Student Foundation was able to award nearly 100 scholarships last year.  

Join us in providing much-needed scholarship support by making your gift today.

About Our Scholarships

There are two types of gifts to Student Foundation scholarships: current scholarships and endowed scholarships.

Current Gifts

If you would like to make a gift to a named endowed scholarship fund, please visit our main online giving page and type the name of the fund in the search field.

Contributions to the Student Foundation Scholarship Fund will be used to meet needs within the current fiscal year.  Current gifts to Student Foundation provide immediate benefits to students when the scholarships are awarded at the Spring Scholarship Banquet.

Donate to Current Fund

Alumni and friends are encouraged to make their gift online or through a meeting with a member of the Student Foundation Alumni Relations committee.  If you would like to schedule a visit, please email Jennifer Crow or Caroline McCarthy.

Endowment

Gifts to endowed funds make a permanent impact because the initial gift remains in the endowment while a portion of the earnings is used to provide a scholarship to a deserving student.  All gifts to any Student Foundation Endowment Fund support our scholarships.  You may choose to:

Donate to Endowed Fund

  • Create an endowed scholarship fund in your name or as a tribute to a friend or loved one.  You may fund your endowment over a specified period of time, and when the fund reaches $50,000, it will begin providing assistance to Baylor students.  For more information on this option, you may contact University Development at (254) 710-2561.
