For many students, college simply would not be affordable without financial assistance. That's where the Discovery Scholars Fund comes in. Scholarships are awarded to undergraduate students based on a combination of academic merit and financial need. When you give to the Discovery Scholars program you can choose to give to a specific college or to the general Discovery Scholars Fund. Students who receive a Discovery Scholars scholarship span a range of studies from agriculture to zoology.
Donations of all sizes are welcome and when they are pooled together they make a meaningful impact in our students' lives.
