The importance of scholarships

[INSERT UNIVERSITY] continues to see significant growth in our enrollment, academic programs, and reputation as one of the nation’s finest educational institutions. In order to continue strengthening our academic programs, [INSERT UNIVERSITY] welcomes the best and brightest students from all over the world. For many of these students, an education would not be possible without considerable financial support. With enrollment increases in recent years, [INSERT UNIVERSITY] strives to secure funding for our students through the creation of new scholarships and the support of existing scholarship commitments. It is through scholarships that students from financially disadvantaged backgrounds are afforded the opportunity to enjoy a superior education and leverage opportunities post-graduation.

How Do I Contribute?

Bequests – Gifts from Your Will or Estate

Scholarships can be established in honor or in memory of a family member, friend, co-worker, student, faculty member, or you!

Many individuals choose to create scholarships in their name to preserve their legacy for generations and to create a substantial impact for students that have similar backgrounds or areas of studies to the donor. It may be noted that scholarships can also be established in recognition of a department, program or initiative at the University. One of the best methods to create a scholarship or to contribute to a scholarship fund is through planned giving via a charitable bequest in a Will.
