Do you have someone you would like to honor? Perhaps someone in your family - your mother, your father - or a SLU faculty member has helped you become the person you are. Endowed scholarships and other endowments honor individuals or groups by establishing a fund that grows over time. The interest generated is used for scholarships for worthy students or to retain the best and brightest faculty.

Endowed scholarships as well as other endowment opportunities give donors a chance to honor someone and help Saint Louis University students in many ways. An endowed scholarship offers immediate financial assistance to current students and provides future giving options for other donors, while honoring the person(s) for whom the scholarship was established. A minimum gift of $25,000 for undergraduates or $50,000 for graduate/professional students establishes an endowed scholarship. This gift can be payable over a period of five years. The scholarship will be awarded when the book value reaches or surpasses the minimum requirement for one full fiscal year. The principal is invested by Saint Louis University and the interest earned provides the scholarship revenue.

 An annual scholarship is established for a minimum of a $2,500 gift. Annual scholarships can be awarded one time only or can be renewed for as many years as the donor wishes.
