Eastablish a Named Scholarship Endowment

Establishing an endowed scholarship is an ideal way to create your legacy at the Mount and ensure a quality education for generations of Mount students.

Named scholarship endowments provide a permanent source of scholarship income for the benefit of students at Mount St. Mary's University. A minimum gift of $50,000 is required to establish an endowed scholarship, which may be payable over a period of up to five years. Scholarships may also be funded through a donor's estate plans, although awards will not be made until the $50,000 endowment is received. Awards are made after an initial investment period of one year.
