Support a Scholarship

Making a difference in the future, one student at a time!

Ways to give:

  1. Yearly scholarship: Direct your one-time gift of $1000 or more to help a student in any area of the college.  If you would like, you can pledge to make a yearly gift for several years.
  2. Flex scholarship endowment: Create a yearly scholarship while you build up an endowment to support the scholarship in perpetuity.
  3. Scholarship Endowment: Create an endowment to support scholarship’s long term.

Awarding Process:

  • If you choose a yearly scholarship, your scholarship recipient will be selected for the current semester or the next semester depending on the date of the gift.
  • For a flex and completed endowment, your scholarship recipient will be selected during the annual scholarship awarding process for the next fall semester.
  • Your scholarship recipient will be selected by a department or the college based on criteria outlined by you through the gift use agreement.
  • You can base your criteria on a major, department, or leave it open to any student within CAHNRS.
  • You will receive a thank you letter from your scholarship recipient, along with an invitation to meet your student at the spring CAHNRS Honors event.
