For many students at Husson University, the importance of scholarships and financial aid cannot be overstated. Nearly 90% of our students qualify to receive federal, state, community and/or campus-based financial aid and scholarships. Husson students need your support, and endowed scholarships are critical to their success at Husson.
An endowed scholarship is a gift that creates a permanent legacy for Husson students. Endowed gifts are placed in a permanent fund and a portion of the income earned from that fund provides scholarship assistance to students, both on a need and merit basis. Husson’s policies for endowment investments and spending are available upon request.
Funding of endowed scholarships begins at the $25,000 level and can occur through an outright gift of cash or appreciated stock, or through a multi-year pledge. Also, scholarships can be endowed through a bequest or other charitable giving instruments (e.g. gift annuities, trusts, etc.).
Endowed scholarships can be named in honor of an individual or family member (living/deceased), in honor of the donor himself/herself, or in recognition of a business or organization.
The donor, in consultation with the Office of Advancement, can determine the parameters of the scholarship to reflect their specific wishes. However, scholarship awards based on financial need or academic merit without additional restrictions are strongly encouraged.
You may make additional gifts to your scholarship fund at any time and all gifts are 100% tax-deductible.
In no uncertain terms, a student scholarship at Husson is the gift of a lifetime.
Starting an endowed scholarship - in your name or in memory of a loved one - is easy. For more information or to make a gift to an existing endowed scholarship, please contact our Director of Planned Giving.
