The Heart of Giving to Higher Education

Thank you for considering a gift to fund a student scholarship through the FAU Foundation. Of the many philanthropic opportunities you might consider, none more directly affects the quality and future of our students than scholarships. Our knowledgeable team will work with you to establish and administer your transformational gift in a way that honors your intentions and the FAU spirit of learning.

Expendable and Endowed Scholarships

Both expendable and endowed scholarships are awarded to students meeting the criteria outlined in the gift agreement you create with the FAU Foundation.

An expendable scholarship does not accrue interest and is awarded based upon the available balance. (For example, an expendable scholarship with a balance of $5,000 could provide up to $5,000 in assistance.)

An endowed scholarship provides perpetual awards based on the earnings of the endowed fund. Endowed accounts are a wonderful way to leave a legacy for yourself, a loved one, or an honored friend or colleague.
