Blugold Promise Scholarship

Support the Blugold Promise

Help a promising student with limited financial means achieve their educational goals. This scholarship is agreement between you and a deserving student that provides access to higher education while holding them to a high academic standard.

Help a promising student with limited financial means achieve their educational goals. This scholarship is an agreement between you and a motivated, deserving student that provides access to higher education while holding them to a high academic standard.

You can establish the fund in your name or in honor or memory of someone you care about.

Here’s how it works:

  • You make a gift of $2,000 or more over a two-year period. 
  • The Foundation directs your funds to motivated, responsible students. 
  • The student promises to make the most of their education and your gift. 
  • Incoming freshmen receive at least $1,000 and if they remain in good academic standing, a renewal scholarship of at least $1,000 is provided their sophomore year.

Would you like to ensure ongoing scholarship funding? With a commitment of $30,000 or more over a five-year period, you can endow a Blugold Promise Scholarship, like the John Kell Memorial Blugold Promise Scholarship established in 2006.

Help ensure the dream of a college education for many turns into a reality. Contact us to establish a Blugold Promise Scholarship.

“I had the opportunity to go to school because of a scholarship. For me it’s paying forward.”
