How do I start a scholarship?

Is there a need for more scholarship support at Trevecca?

Yes! While a college education—especially in a Christian environment like Trevecca—is a critically important investment, it is an expensive one. Many of Trevecca’s students come from families who have limited resources like pastors, missionaries, and teachers. In fact, nearly 95% of Trevecca’s undergraduate students receive some type of financial aid.

What are the steps to set up a scholarship at Trevecca?

First, you need to decide what type of student you would like to assist. It could be for a student studying in a certain field such as education. Or, you may want to designate the region the student lives, such as the State of Florida. You may want to assist students who have high financial need or combine various designations. It is important to note that the scholarships with fewer designations are easier to award that those with many restrictions.

Second, you need to decide if you want to fund an endowed scholarship or an annual scholarship. An endowed scholarship is one where the scholarship funds are invested and the income from the funds are available to award. A minimum of $20,000 (reached within 3 years) is needed to fund an endowed scholarship. An annual scholarship is one that is awarded, as funds are available. Some donors choose to fund a combination of an endowed and an annual scholarship.

Third, you need to decide what name you would like to give the scholarship fund. It is helpful if the scholarship is for a particular type of student, that it is reflected generally in the name. For example if it is for education majors then “Education” would be included in the name. Many persons want to honor or memorialize a family member or friend. Example: John and Martha Smith Education Scholarship

Others would like to include their own name as part of the name. Example: John Smith Religion Scholarship.

Finally, you will work with a member of the Office of University Engagement to draft written guidelines that clearly spell out the details of the scholarship.

May others who are interested in the scholarship I establish also make gifts?

Yes! Anyone may designate a gift to a specific scholarship fund. This is a common practice when a scholarship is established in honor or in memory of a loved one.

May I designate the student to receive the scholarship?

Because of IRS regulations, the donor cannot choose the student who is to receive the scholarship. The University must make the selection based on the guidelines established by the donor(s).

What gift resources do people use to start a scholarship?

Scholarship gifts may be made in many different ways through many different means including checks, credit cards, securities, real estate, monthly electronic payments, annuities, and even estate plans.

Once I establish of scholarship, will I hear from Trevecca about it?

If you establish an endowed scholarship fund, you will receive an annual statement regarding the earnings (or losses) of the fund. You will also receive information regarding the student(s) who were awarded the scholarship.
