Endowed Scholarships

An endowed scholarship makes awards solely from investment earnings with no invasion of principal. Consequently, an endowed scholarship fund is perpetual. Cedarville University invests endowed funds in a conservative manner under the direction of the Investment Committee of the Board of Trustees. A portion of the portfolio earns the current income used to fund the annual awards, and a portion earns capital gain for long term principal growth to preserve the fund and enhance future awards. An endowed scholarship fund should start with a minimum gift of $50,000
