Establish an Endowed Scholarship
With a minimum gift of $100,000, a scholarship can be funded in perpetuity. The scholarship can carry a name important to the donor, and preference can be given to recipients who meet donor-specified criteria.
Establish a Term Scholarship
With a minimum commitment of $3,000 a year for at least five years, a donor can name a scholarship for a loved one and give preferential criteria. The gift amount is provided as scholarship aid each year, and the scholarship terminates when the gift payments end. Many term scholarship donors choose to endow their scholarship so it continues in perpetuity.
Trustee Diversity Scholarships
The Emerson College Board of Trustees has established a program to provide full scholarships to qualified students whose participation will enhance the College’s diversity. Each such scholarship requires a minimum annual commitment of $30,000 for four years, and may be endowed with a minimum gift of $1,000,000.
Emerson offers competitive financial aid packages to attract the world's most talented students—thanks to your generous gifts.
Many Emerson College students benefit from your much-needed scholarship support.
Students who received scholarships from Emerson College explain why they chose Emerson, how they're able to both have peace of mind and concentrate on preparing for the future, and how much they appreciate you.
