Class of 1966 Endowment Fund
This Class of 1966 Endowment Fund is used for awarding one scholarship each to two or more students, at least one male and at least one female, each year. The students must be juniors or seniors and must have GPA of 3.0 or higher. The students are selected by the Office of Financial Aids.
The amount available for scholarships each year is stated in the Gift Agreement between us and the University. The Agreement states that "a percentage, determined by the Board of Trustees, of the Fund's average market value for the three preceding years shall be distributed for awards. Any portion of the Fund's annual investment earnings that is not distributed for awards shall be reinvested to increase the Fund's market value".
