Scholarship Workbook

Endowed and other scholarships are sources of student financial aid made possible through the generosity of friends of the college. Scholarships are donated in perpetuity, often as a memorial or in recognition of a special person.

These scholarships have been made possible by alumni and other friends closely related to Linfield College. It is hoped that recipients of this generosity will later continue this cycle of generosity to benefit future generations.
