Endowed Scholarships

Scholarships give bright, talented students with financial need the opportunity to succeed in pursuing their dreams of a Regis degree. Regis awards more than $24 million in scholarship and financial aid to students each year, and donor-funded scholarships make an incredible impact on many of these students in need.

 

How it Works

A donor-named, endowed scholarship can be established with a minimum commitment of $100,000 (to be pledged and paid over a period of one to four years). The gift amount is invested in the university’s endowment, is retained in perpetuity, and cannot be spent; the interest earned (5% annually) from the endowed scholarship fund is awarded to a student(s) each year. As additional funds are added to a scholarship fund, the amount distributed will increase (see sample chart below)—creating an even bigger annual impact.

Creating a Scholarship

  • Donors may establish the endowed scholarship in their own name or in the name of a family member, classmate, or friend
  • The donor can determine criteria for the scholarship, e.g., for students with high academic achievement and great financial need, or for students in a specific program of study
  • Donors may elect for the yearly scholarship funding to go to one student or to be split among several students
  • Scholarship donors receive an annual report, and pending privacy approval from the student, information about the student recipient
  • Scholarship donors are invited to an annual Scholarship Luncheon and/or virtual event, with the potential opportunity to meet their scholar
