Endowed scholarships create a permanent fund that is invested and generates annual earnings. A percentage of those earnings is used to fund yearly scholarships and the fund generates income in perpetuity. The minimum level to establish an endowed scholarship is $10,000.
Annual Scholarships are a commitment to provide yearly support to fund a scholarship. These awards can be ongoing or made as a one-time scholarship.
The General Scholarship Fund exists as a result of pooling donations from many donors. A contribution of any amount may be given to this fund.
