Scholarship endowments

A scholarship endowment is a gift to Miami University that is invested in perpetuity and produces an annual distribution according to Miami’s endowment spending policy. The earnings are distributed each year in the form of scholarship support awarded to deserving students.

  • Scholarship endowments begin at $25,000, payable over five years;
  • The scholarship can be awarded according to the University’s scholarship funding priorities and designated to a specific School or College at Miami;
  • The scholarship can be named for you or in honor of someone else;
  • The scholarship fund can grow with additional contributions by you or others over time.

For a limited time, Miami’s Match the Promise program is offering an expendable University match for newly created scholarship endowments of at least $50,000.
