Scholarships

When you support scholarships at the University of Saint Francis, you help provide essential financial aid packages that could be the deciding factor in whether a student can attend the university. We will work with you to create a new scholarship or to fund an existing scholarship program that will support USF.

Annual Scholarships

Donors may establish a named scholarship that does not require an endowment. Named scholarships are designed to encourage scholarship support at annual levels.

Donors wishing to establish a named annual scholarship must give an annual gift of $2,500 or more. Donors have the ability to name their scholarship after themselves, in memory or honor of another, etc.
