Named Endowment Funds

Catawba College is fortunate to have alumni, friends, and businesses who have generously contributed funds to establish named endowments for the purpose of providing scholarship assistance for qualifying students. Following are the funds at Catawba College from which annual Endowed Scholarships are awarded. The funds are part of the college's permanent endowment and are used primarily to fund institutional merit scholarships such as Presidential Scholarships, Trustee Scholarships, and Access Grants. Awards are made annually from the interest earned on the endowment. Named Endowed scholarships may be established with gifts of $25,000 or more.

Student Eligibility

It is not possible for students to apply for endowed scholarships individually. Students who have completed the application for financial assistance at Catawba College will automatically be considered for any scholarships for which they may be eligible.
