What is an Annual Named Scholarship?
An annual named scholarship, in honor or in memory of someone, is established with a gift of $4,000 per year. Donors generally make a commitment to provide a $4,000 per year scholarship for at least three or four years, as degree programs are four-year programs. The Annual Scholarship covers the cost of all student tuition but not incidental costs.
Beyond helping the students, what are the benefits to establishing an Annual Named Scholarship?
Personal Connection with Students: A donor who provides a $4,000 gift to establish an annual named scholarship receives a letter of gratitude from the student who is supported by the scholarship, and grade reports are provided at the end of the academic year. Additionally, the names of the annual scholarship donors are published on the Bethlehem University website.
