Baker University is grateful for the generosity of our donors who provide financial assistance to students through endowed scholarship funds. Since the start of the Forever Orange Campaign, Baker has received more than $6.5 million in gifts for endowed scholarships. Nearly 90 percent of Baker students at the College of Arts and Sciences receive some form of financial aid, and endowed scholarships are instrumental in that support.
All endowed scholarship funds are invested in the Baker University endowment, and a percentage, which is set annually by the Baker University Board of Trustees, is used to award scholarships to deserving students. Each scholarship fund has its own award criteria that was established by the fund administrators when the original gift was received by the university.
A minimum of $10,000 is required to create an endowed scholarship. To learn more about establishing an endowed scholarship at Baker University or how you can make a donation to an existing endowed scholarship, please contact the Office of Development at 800.726.1554.
