The number of students needing assistance continues to grow each year. That is why increasing scholarship support for students with financial need is one of our top priorities. Most valuable are endowed scholarships that provide awards year after year, for generations.

  • Awarded once the minimum investment is met

Virtual named Endowed Scholarships

  • Planned giving option
