Endowed and Special Scholarships

Endowed and Special Scholarships

Endowed and other scholarships are sources of student financial aid made possible through the generosity of alumni and other friends closely related to Linfield. Endowed scholarships are awarded from the annual spendable amount generated from the perpetual fund (as dictated by the college's endowment spending guidelines), often as a memorial or recognition of a special person. They are administered by the Office of Financial Aid. It is hoped that recipients of this generosity, later and when circumstances permit, will decide to aid others by continuing such scholarships for the benefit of students of future generations.

No separate application forms are required for these scholarships. All students who apply for assistance are automatically considered for each of the scholarships, in accordance with the wishes of the donors and college policies relating to financial aid.
