Establishing A Scholarship

There are two ways to establish a Foundation Scholarship at Merced College:

  • Through annual gifts paid on a yearly basis
  • Through an endowed fund with interest awarded in scholarships

Endowing a scholarship is committing to build a fund of at least $10,000. Planned gifts such as life insurance, bequests, and trusts may also be used to fund the endowment.

As a donor, you may specify a grade point average, national achievement score, financial need, or area of study for your scholarship's recipients. You may even wish to restrict applicants to those from your hometown or county. You may also choose to have your recipients selected by the Foundationís scholarship committee or by an academic department.
