Establishing a Fellowship

Support students in a particular field of study by establishing a fellowship. Fellowships are awarded during even-numbered years, and the amount of the award is determined by the fellowship administrator or designated group. Fellowship funds are not invested and therefore do not earn any annual interest. Fellowships grow via ongoing donor contributions and there are no limitations on the amount of the fellowship awards.

While cash donations are the most common form of giving; planned gifts such as insurance policies, memorial gifts, charitable trusts, stocks and bonds are other methods. One of the most gratifying ways for donors to support lifelong learning is by giving to or establishing an endowment fund or fellowship within the Foundation.
