Make a gift to the Stephens Fund and support our legacy of excellence.

Choose the Stephens Fund to support College operations ... or a special initiative that honors our legacy and moves the College forward ... because there are so many ways to give to Stephens College. 

Your gift to the Stephens Fund supports such essential areas as scholarships, academic support and services, faculty excellence, innovative guest speakers, athletics, student heath and wellness, student programming, and our beautiful campus. Please give to the Stephens Fund to support the College’s greatest needs.

The scholarship fund currently accounts for one of every $12 awarded to students each year, and is vital in our financial aid awards to students. 

 

Scholarships

We honor alumnae, families and friends who fund and name scholarships. With almost 200 scholarships, hundreds of awards are made each year. There are two types of named scholarships: 

Endowed scholarships have funds invested in perpetuity and awards are funded through investment earnings. 

Annual scholarships start as five+ year commitments to annually fund a scholarship, usually for at least $5,000 per year. The full amount is awarded to a student each year.
