Establish a scholarship fund
At UHSP, we encourage our students to pursue greatness every day, and scholarships are vital to helping students grow, learn, serve and pursue an extraordinary future. By establishing a named, donor-funded scholarship you can help set our students on their individual paths to success.

Why Establish a Scholarship?
Your scholarship provides financial support to current UHSP students, helping them realize their education and setting them on a path for future success. You may customize the award to fit your individual preferences, such as supporting students who have certain skills or interests or who are pursuing a specific field of study.
Establish a scholarship fund if you would like to:
- Support students in a direct, personal way
- Honor your, or your family’s, legacy
- Memorialize or honor a friend, colleague or loved one
- Express your company or organization’s values
Scholarship Awarding Process
Each year, UHSP students can apply for donor-funded scholarships through the general scholarship application. The University’s Scholarship Awards Committee, composed of faculty and staff members, performs a holistic evaluation of each application and each scholarship’s established criteria, matching available funds with eligible students.
In the fall, the annual Scholarship Awards dinner brings scholarship donors and their scholarship recipients together to celebrate both students’ accomplishments and scholarship sponsors’ generosity.
Types of Scholarship Funds
Require a minimum investment of $1,000, which can be given all at once, or in monthly or quarterly installments. Gifts must be received by June 30 each year to be awarded for the next academic year.
Permanent, long-term funds that require a minimum investment of $25,000, which can be given at one time or over a period of up to five years.

Gifts to establish scholarships can be outright donations made during your lifetime, or planned gifts made through your will or estate plan. Let us know if you would like to learn more or take the next step to establish your scholarship.
