Renaissance Fund Scholarships

The Renaissance Fund

The Renaissance Fund, created in 1969, provides scholarship support to academically talented students with the greatest financial need, regardless of academic major or other criteria. Scholarship recipients receive an annual award of $1,500 for up to four years if they maintain a 3.0 grade point average and demonstrate financial need. During the 2012-13 academic year, 480 students received Renaissance scholarships totaling $690,632.

Make a Difference—Support the Renaissance Fund

Gifts of any amount are pooled into the general Renaissance Fund endowment to provide scholarships. A contribution of $1,500 can support a Renaissance Fund Scholar for one year, while $30,000 can endow a named scholarship, providing support in perpetuity. Donors may establish Renaissance Fund Scholarships as University-wide or for a particular campus. Every gift, regardless of amount, aids these talented Renaissance Fund Scholars who will become tomorrow's leaders in the sciences, business and industry, government, and the humanities.
