Establishing a Scholarship

UMW Scholarship Luncheon 2016-024Establish an endowed scholarship at Mary Washington with a gift of $25,000 or more. Make a one-time gift or fulfill the commitment over a period of up to five years. Your initial gift is carefully invested and, while the principal remains intact, a portion of the interest it earns funds the scholarship in perpetuity.

You may name a scholarship in honor or in memory of a friend, family member, respected professor, or for a company or organization.

The Office of University Advancement will work with you and/or your advisors to establish the scholarship and to outline criteria for the selection of recipients. If you would like more information about establishing a scholarship, please contact the Office of University Advancement at, or call 540-654-1024.

The UMW Office of Advancement oversees the establishment of all scholarships.

The Office of Financial Aid coordinates the application and selection process for scholarship recipients.
