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. If you would like to contribute to an existing endowed scholarship, see a current list.
President’s $1 Million Scholarship Challenge
Austin College must raise $2.5 million each year to fund student meredit- and need-based aid. To meet the remaining need for this year, President O’Day has challenged Austin College alumni to give $1 million in support of scholarships before June 30, 2018.
Visit www.austincollege.edu/giving and designate your gift to scholarships. All gifts, regardless of size, make a difference for students. Let’s meet the challenge!
Sponsored Scholarship Opportunities
For 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.
