Opportunity Scholarship Fund

When you give to the Opportunity Scholarship Fund, you open doors and change lives.  

It’s estimated that 90% of current undergraduate students need financial assistance to attend Hamline.

Your gift to the Opportunity Scholarship Fund helps provide scholarship assistance to students who otherwise could not attend Hamline. Your support helps Hamline ensure educational access and affordability.

As part of the Alumni Annual Fund, contributions to the Opportunity Scholarship Fund will be earmarked specifically for financial aid and need-based scholarships. One hundred percent of gifts designated to this fund will be used to provide annual scholarship support to current students.

Named Annual Scholarships

A gift designated for an annually awarded scholarship makes an immediate impact on the lives of individual students. With your minimum gift of $1,000 a year for five years, you will receive naming rights for the scholarship and will work with a development officer to establish basic criteria for awarding the scholarship to a student. You will receive information on the student recipient annually.

For more information about a named annual scholarship opportunity, please contact the Development Office at (651) 523-2200 or giving@hamline.edu.

Endowed Scholarships

Endowed scholarship funds are permanently invested to supply a perpetual source of scholarship  support to Hamline’s students. These funds can be established to create your own legacy, or in honor of your family or someone dear to you.

Your gift can establish a new endowment fund (minimum gift levels apply to ensure that the scholarship can achieve the benefactor’s intent, both today and in the future) or add to an existing endowment fund (no gift amount restrictions). To learn more about making a donation to establish or to support endowed scholarships, contact the Development Office at (651) 523-2200 or giving@hamline.edu.
