Create a Scholarship

Endowed scholarships provide perpetual support for current and future generations of Davenport students. These funds are invested, with a percentage of their earnings allocated annually for financial aid. This allows the fund to provide for current scholarship needs while protecting it for future use. Endowed scholarships at Davenport University require a minimum commitment of $25,000, which may be made as a single contribution or donated over several years. Once an endowed scholarship fund has reached $25,000, it will be invested for one year before being allocated. Even after an endowed fund reaches maturity, continuing to support the fund will maximize its impact, allowing it to provide additional and/or larger student scholarships.

Annual scholarships are awarded in their entirety in one academic year. To establish this type of scholarship, a $500 minimum annual gift and a multi-year commitment is required by the donor. The awarding criteria for all scholarships is established by the donor in conjunction with the Alumni and Development Office. Awarding criteria may include academic achievement, financial need, or enrollment at a specific campus, to name a few.

Donors are notified annually of their scholarship’s market value and student recipients. For more information about establishing a named scholarship or other giving opportunities at Davenport University, please contact Louise Kidd at 616-233-3413 or Louise.Kidd@davenport.edu.
