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 endowment scholarship fund is established, the gift is invested in perpetuity, and only the income (generally, interest earnings) from the fund’s principal is available for distribution annually. 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, often renewable. When a donor establishes an annual scholarship, the entire gift is awarded to a student or students during the current or next academic year. The annual scholarship minimum is $500.
To establish a scholarship fund to benefit North Central State College students, please call the College Foundation’s executive director at 419-755-4753.
