Scholarships are a wonderful gift - funding for college that students never have to pay back.  Scholarships are often the deciding factor whether or not students can attend Concordia.  Making a gift in support of scholarships shows current students that the worldwide Cobber community believes in them and their ability to succeed.

Scholarship gifts benefit hundreds of students each year. You can even have the option of establishing a scholarship in the name and honor or memory of a loved one. And all the while, you'll know your gift is helping a student receive a Concordia education.

Scholarship funding can come from annual gifts or through interest on investments. An Advancement team member can explain the process and requirements for establishing a scholarship.

Endowed Gifts

Your endowed scholarship gifts are invested by Concordia and the spendable investment income is awarded to a selected student. The principal remains intact, providing ongoing scholarship funds. To establish an endowed scholarship, a minimum of $30,000 is required. Choose to fund the entire endowment at once or make payments over a period of three to five years. Contact us for more information.

Named Scholarships or Awards

Named scholarships, also known as restricted scholarships, are funded annually. This amount is then awarded to a selected student on an annual basis. To establish a restricted named scholarship, there is a minimum commitment of $5,000 per year.
