Create a Scholarship

Many donors take advantage of the endowed scholarship program to honor or memorialize family members or others.
In addition to a set of general criteria for all scholarships, donors may specify additional selection criteria, such as designating a preferred major or degree program or a geographical location where the applicant must reside.
The minimum amount to endow a scholarship is $25,000.
This amount may be paid in installments for a period of up to five years.
Funds are invested and the principle remains intact, and the interest is used to award a scholarship each year.
If you would like to start an endowed scholarship contact Angie Covey, acovey@nr.edu
