Fund a Scholarship

Creating a scholarship is a wonderful way to directly impact FRCC students.

Scholarships can be established through annual contributions or an endowment.

Named Annual Scholarships:

  • Are paid by the donor(s) each year
  • Minimum $2,500 per year, with three-year pledge
  • Specific criteria may be defined by donor
  • May be named as directed by the donor in their scholarship agreement

Endowed Scholarships:

  • Are established by the donor(s) with a $25,000 minimum gift
  • Pay out 4% per year, based on three-year rolling average
  • Specific criteria may be defined by donor
  • May be named as directed by the donor in their scholarship or endowment agreement
  • May be gifted through current funds or an estate gift
