Individuals, families, groups, and businesses may establish scholarships to benefit the needs of HSU Students. There are two different types of scholarships, both of which meet crucial needs of our students:
An endowed scholarship is perpetual because only the earnings are used. The principal remains intact, generating income every year to be awarded to students who meet the criteria that the donor selects. Donors may select criteria such as a student’s geographic location, GPA, financial need, or major field of study. An endowed scholarship creates a legacy that benefits students for generations to come.
An endowed scholarship may be created in honor or memory of a loved one, a favorite professor, or a fellow class member. You may choose to create an endowed scholarship to celebrate a milestone, such as a birthday or wedding anniversary. Many of our constituents have created scholarships in tribute to loved ones, and make additional gifts to the scholarship on special occasions such as birthdays, anniversary or Christmas.
A scholarship award is used in the year in which it is given. The current impact is greater than that of an endowed scholarship, but once the scholarship is awarded, the funds are depleted. Some of our constituents choose to fund scholarship awards with annual gifts. As with endowed scholarships, donors may select the criteria of the recipient(s), and may pay tribute to the honor or memory of someone special in their lives.
