Establishing a Scholarship Fund with the College Foundation
The College Foundation encourages the establishment of endowed scholarships, as they are lasting tributes to individuals, organizations, communities and companies, and provide an opportunity to provide perpetual support for students of North Central State College.
When an individual or organization establishes an endowment scholarship fund, the gift is invested in perpetuity, and only the income from the fund’s principal is distributed for scholarships. Endowments may be established with a minimum gift of $10,000, though the greater the investment, the more scholarships that can be awarded.
Annual scholarships are established as a short term gift. When a donor establishes an annual scholarship, the entire gift is awarded to a student or students. The annual scholarship minimum is $500 per academic year. View the complete list of scholarships that are currently being administered by the College Foundation.
