Create a Scholarship

Donor-funded scholarships are a great and lasting statement of your belief in a University of St. Francis education and our mission to prepare students for lives of leadership and service. Two types of scholarships鈥攁nnual and endowed鈥攃an be established at the University of St. Francis.

Endowed Scholarships:听Endowed scholarships are designed to be permanent and live in perpetuity. They can be created with gifts totaling a minimum amount of $25,000. The principal of the fund is invested to produce income, and an annual award is made to a student or students. The principal remains untouched, so the endowment can last into perpetuity.

Annual Scholarships:听Annual scholarships can be established with a commitment of $5,000 over five years. Annual scholarships are not a permanent fund and is awarded only as long as funds are available.
