With a minimum commitment of $60,000 (which will yield a $2,400 scholarship), establishing an endowed scholarship is the perfect way to ensure the continuous honor of a company, favorite command or loved one. Scholarship endowments may be made in one lump sum or amortized over 1-4 years. Disbursements from endowments cannot be made until a minimum of $60,000 has been endowed.  

Endowed scholarships provide the donor opportunities to:

  • establish the scholarship as a renewable or annual scholarship
  • require additional selection criteria is met during selection (for example-command dependent, officer dependent, enlisted dependent, STEM student)
