Austin College cares deeply about ensuring that talented young students have access to a quality liberal arts education on our campus. Scholarships make that access possible.
Meeting the need NOW
The Austin College NOW Scholarship Fund provides critical support to financially assist students so they can continue their education. Gifts to this fund in any amount help complete the financial aid package for a current student for up to four years of enrollment. Sixty-five percent of our students qualify for need-based financial aid, and over 90 percent of those students have that need met – first with institutional scholarships and then with other forms of grants and loans.
Sponsored Scholarship Opportunities
For NOW Scholarship gifts of $3,000 per year and above, you can connect your name or the name of someone you wish to honor with a sponsored scholarship for an Austin College student. A naming gift allows you to be matched with a student recipient so that, if desired, you can build a relationship with the student.
The Austin College experience is defined for many with trips to study, both domestically and abroad. A JanTerm Scholarship, in the amount of $1,500 or more, allows donors to connect with a student and help fund their travel experience during JanTerm. Like the Sponsored Scholarship, this gift matches the donor with a student for a single JanTerm, allowing a personal connection to be made.
