Named Golf Scholarship Program

A gift to establish an endowed scholarship provides current income to fund a scholarship each year and permanently memorializes the donor or any individual in whose honor the scholarship is named. A gift is used to establish the permanent endowment, and the funds are invested. Interest on the endowment is used each year to provide financial aid to the student-athlete qualifying for the scholarship under the criteria the donor determines. The original gift remains in the program forever. For more information on endowing a scholarship, contact Mindy Hyde in the Alexander-Tharpe Fund.
