Endowed scholarship funds are of vital importance to Ouachita and her students. Such funds provide financial aid that enables many students to choose Ouachita over alternative colleges with lower costs.
Escalating fixed costs and the tuition gap between private and public colleges make the scholarship funds increasingly important as a recruiting tool and a necessity for an ever growing number of students.
The majority of these scholarship funds are designed to make awards that allow for the gap between tuition and actual cost of attendance to narrow. Scholarship awards are granted according to the expressed directions of the donor as recorded in the scholarship agreement. In most cases, the University Scholarship Committee selects the individual recipients. All endowed scholarships are named for the donor(s) or as the donor directs, and are listed in various University publications.
