Establishing a Named Endowed Scholarship

Endowed scholarship funds are ensuring legacies. They bear the name of the donor or person whom the donor wishes to honor in perpetuity. Individuals, corporations and foundations can participate in the endowed program with these minimum guidelines:

  • A gift in the amount of $50,000, payable over five years, is required to establish a named fund
  • A gift in the amount of $750,000 generates enough income to support a full scholarship reflective of a typical financial aid package
  • Once an endowed fund is established, a donor can add to it by making gifts in any incremental account
  • Endowment funds are invested for the long term and a predetermined portion of the earnings are disbursed to support a student on an annual basis in perpetuity

Benefactors who make leadership gifts to the endowment are recognized with membership in The Estate Society. In addition, benefactors are invited to interact with the students supported by the scholarship through annual events and correspondence.

Special Awards

Each year the University offers merit scholarships based on a student's high school record of academic achievement. These scholarships include both Presidential (full-tuition) and Dean's and Loyola (partial-tuition) scholarships. No separate application is necessary.

Scranton Preparatory School Scholarship
This four-year, full-tuition scholarship, initiated in 1947 by the President and Board of Trustees of the University, is given to a graduate of the Scranton Preparatory School.  Selection of the recipient based on academic achievement, qualities of leadership, service to the Preparatory School, and recommendation of the president and the dean of studies of the Preparatory School.

Purple Club Scholarships
Noteworthy among gifts to University of Scranton students are the amounts contributed annually by the Purple Club of Scranton. Since its founding in 1933, the Purple Club has provided special financial support to deserving and qualified students.
