Scholarships enable UW Oshkosh colleges, departments and programs to assist students with tuition and other college expenses according to donor stipulations. Scholarships help attract the best students to UW Oshkosh and assist those in need of financial support. While at UW Oshkosh, these students develop knowledge and skills that lead to careers and futures they might never have had.
Donors establish endowed scholarship funds to ensure students will benefit from their generosity for generations to come. Because the endowment principal is never spent, these funds provide a lasting legacy for donors, who may play an integral role in determining scholarship criteria to ensure that their intentions are continually honored.
The principal of endowed scholarship funds is conserved perpetually, with only the earnings used to finance the awards. The Foundation Board of Directors annually sets a recommended spending level for endowed funds, based on investment performance.
Endowed funds are assessed an annual administrative fee of 2 percent. The minimum contribution to endow a fund is $10,000 and donors may take up to four years to reach that level.
