Establishing a Scholarship
The Worcester State Foundation undergraduate scholarship program has grown dramatically since it was established in 1998. Fifteen scholarships were awarded then. Since 2008, over 200 are given out annually. With hundreds of students submitting applications in recent years, the Foundation is keenly focused on increasing the number of scholarships.

Establishing an endowed tuition scholarship requires a minimum gift/pledge of $25,000 (payable over a maximum of five years). To set up an endowed tuition-and-fee scholarship, a minimum gift/pledge of $100,000 is necessary (payable over a maximum of five years). Scholarships can also be provided on an annual basis through outright gifts of cash or stock.
Scholarship donors have influenced the program so that it reflects Worcester State University’s diversity of programs, student body, and alumni family. You, too, can establish a scholarship in honor of or in memory of a family member, friend, or colleague, for students with backgrounds similar to yours, for students who are enrolled in your academic major or minor, for students who plan to enter your profession, for students who belong to the same student organization you belonged to, for international student, for students who volunteer in the community, etc.
