Priorities and Initiatives



Creating Your Own Scholarship


Endowed scholarship and award funds start at $50,000. The larger the gift to scholarship or award endowments, the greater the impact it has in relieving the tuition burden or program cost. Endowed scholarships are invested in their entirety, and awards are made from interest earned. Traditionally over time, five percent of the corpus value is available for awards. Endowed scholarships are permanent fixtures of support for students at the University of Maryland.

An annual scholarship is a gift that is awarded in its entirety in the year it is given or for a set number of years. We suggest a minimum gift of $10,000 so that the award will have a significant impact on one or several students. The scholarship or award may be given to one student or divided among several. Annual scholarships provide for students on a yearly basis. In order to continue the award, the gift must be renewed. Once your annual scholarship funds have been awarded, you may renew the current scholarship fund by making additional gifts.


Legacy Gifts


Bequests are planned gifts as written in your will or living trust, in which you designate the University of Maryland College Park Foundation as a recipient of a percentage of your estate, a certain amount of cash, securities or property.
The official legal bequest language for the University of Maryland College Park Foundation is:
"I give to University of Maryland College Park Foundation, a charitable organization located at 4603 Calvert Rd, College Park MD 20740, [insert $ amount, percentage of residuary estate, or otherwise name gifted assets], for the [insert name of use, fund designation, or restriction, such as “for its general educational purposes”, “for student financial support”, “for the College of --”, “for the Department of –“, or otherwise state donor restrictions]."
Regardless of what you decide, make sure to let us know that you are considering placing the Division of Student Affairs in your will so we can ensure the right language is included. We would also like to thank you for your generous decisions.

Regardless of what you decide, make sure to let us know that you are considering placing the Division of Student Affairs in your will so we can ensure the right language is included. We would also like to thank you for your generous decisions. Generally, the older you are at the start of your payments, the higher your payments.
