Alumni Endowed Scholarship

The Alumni Endowed Scholarship Fund provides financial assistance to direct descendants of Graceland University alumni. Anyone who completes 24 semester hours of course work at Graceland is considered alumni. Each year, Graceland accepts applications starting on Jan. 1 with a deadline of March 1. The Alumni Board Scholarship Committee works hand-in-hand with Graceland Admissions to determine each year’s recipients. Some of the deciding criteria include academic, community and church work along with extracurricular activity and strong desire to attend the University. Students who are selected are eligible to receive the award for up to four years without having to reapply.

The Alumni Board works hard every year to grow the fund, so more students can find an easier financial path to the Graceland experience. Make a gift to the fund on the Make a Gift Today page. Please select "Other" from the dropdown menu and put “Alumni Endowed Scholarship Fund” in the comments box on the online form. The Alumni Board thanks you ahead of time for passing it on.
