Scholarships are financial awards given to students who represent the high standards of Kennesaw State University. Some scholarships may be open to any student while others may have specific requirements on them. Scholarships may be restricted, at the donors discretion, to students enrolled in one of the Honors Programs in the Honors College. They may also be designated to support specific activities engaged in by Honors students, such as education abroad, undergraduate research, or presentation at a conference. Scholarships may be Endowed, Annual or Support Scholarships.

Endowed Scholarships

At Kennesaw State University, a gift of $50,000 is required to create an endowed scholarship. These funds are the principal, which will never be spent and exist in perpetuity to benefit students. A benefactor may choose to fully fund an endowment at the beginning or fund it over a period of three to five years. After the initial endowment, the benefactor, friends or family may continue to make gifts to build the endowment in order to benefit more students.

Annual Scholarships

A gift of $1,000 is required to create an annual scholarship fund. The money is awarded to students yearly. The fund may be renewed each year at the donor's discretion. Like the endowed funds, an annual fund may be named in honor of someone and the donor may provide criteria for the students who should benefit from the fund.

Support Scholarships

Donors may also select to make a contribution to scholarships without creating a fund. These gifts may be of any size and as with Endowed Scholarships or Annual Scholarships may be designated for scholarship funds in the Honors College.

Friends of the Honors College

In addition to scholarships, gifts will be accepted in support of programs within the Honors College (University Honors Program, President's Emerging Global Scholars, Great Books) or in support of specific activities of the Honors College, for example a speakers series. Alternatively, gifts may be made to a fund to be used at the discretion of the Dean in support of Honors College activities and events.
