A scholarship can be a key factor in a young person's decision to attend college and to enter a profession in agriculture or the life sciences. When you establish an endowed scholarship, you give the gift that keeps on giving. You ensure your legacy and help shape the future by assisting the next generation.
The minimum amount needed to endow a scholarship is $10,000. If you decide to endow a scholarship at $10,000, there will be an annual scholarship in perpetuity. Your initial investment can potentially grow, allowing the annual scholarship to increase as well.
These scholarships generally hold the name of the donor, can be established as memorial scholarships or as ways to honor an individual, organization, corporation or foundation, and you can direct them to a specific department or major.
