Beloiters are leaders. They contribute to and transform the communities in which they live and lead. They’re motivated and moving quickly. Whether it be Rachel's passion for food and her vegan co-op; Andy's exploration through class, volunteerism, and campus activities; Amani’s experience as a campus leader, athlete, and accomplished scholar; Joe’s time as a volunteer at an HIV/AIDS clinic; or Ashley’s journey researching food systems in Russia; this generation of Beloiters is being prepared to live lives of leadership, contribution, meaning, and consequence.
For many, scholarship support helps make these ambitious Beloit experiences possible. More than 85% of Beloiters received scholarship support, totaling nearly $20 million annually. These financial aid packages are provided through the support of the college’s alumni and friends--it's brought to them by Beloiters.
There are several ways to support Beloiters today through scholarships, including:
- Endowed Chairs/Professorships: $2 million
Quality faculty form the backbone of Beloit, and receiving a named endowed professorship is a mark of teaching excellence. A named endowment of $2 million or more will yield support for a professor’s salary and benefits, and provide additional funds for scholarship research and professional development. A full roster of prestigious endowed chairs will not only honor our most distinguished senior faculty, it will also enable the college to attract and retain the best young scholars and teachers in the future.
- Endowed Named Scholarship Fund: minimum $25,000
Endowed scholarship funds make it possible for Beloit to admit the most qualified applicants, regardless of their family’s ability to shoulder the full cost of a Beloit education. It takes gifts totaling at least $25,000 to create a named scholarship fund that will begin making grants to students.
- Beloiter Fund Scholarship: $2,500
An annual gift of $2,500 will provide a Beloiter with a named scholarship to help make their Beloit experience possible for one year. You can name your scholarship in honor or in memory of a friend, favorite professor, yourself and significant other, your family, etc.
General scholarships: gifts of any size
Your gift to scholarships enables Beloiters to enjoy transformational experiences now.
Accelerate your impact. If you make a gift of $25,000 or more for current use scholarships, Beloit will match the number of students your gift supports. For example, if your scholarship provides support for two Beloiters, it will now open the doors of opportunity to four Beloiters!
