The Annual Scholarship Fund

The Annual Scholarship Fund (ASF) provides vital scholarships for hundreds of current undergraduate students. One hundred percent of gift revenue received through the ASF is awarded as financial assistance. Make a difference for a student today by giving to the ASF!

IN 1891, HARDIN-SIMMONS UNIVERSITY began providing an education in a Christian environment for young men and women from various walks of life. One hundred and twenty-one years later, we still do.

Since the 1920s, new students have gone through beanie capping ceremonies, and enjoyed the tradition of having classmates autograph their beanies. In more recent years, faculty and staff have joined the fun. Today's freshmen still enjoy this very special tradition.

But our ultimate tradition is the values that were put in place in 1891. This is the tradition that is moving us forward to an exciting and innovative future.

That's where you play an important role.You can ensure that this tradition continues for today's students. Your gift will enable men and women who desire a Christian education to earn one. Please make your gift today... and make a difference for a lifetime.
