How to Establish an Endowed Scholarship

There are three steps to establishing an endowed scholarship:

  1. Name the scholarship.
  2. Outline the conditions that will govern awarding the scholarship.
    Examples: Students may have a suggested major, have a minimum grade point average or come from a specific geographic area. The Advancement staff is available to help you develop the criteria for your scholarship.
  3. Contribute a minimum of $25,000 to the Bryan College endowment fund in the form of cash, securities, or a pledge.

The Bryan College Board of Trustees will invest your scholarship money in a diverse investment portfolio. The Board has set 4% as the distribution target rate. The 4% distribution amount will be calculated based on the average of the calendar year-end values for the 3 most recent calendar years.
