One of the primary missions of the Hocking College Foundation is to provide flexible scholarship support for students who have financial need and show academic promise. Maintaining and growing our ability to provide scholarship assistance, especially during these times of increased tuition costs, is essential.
Honorariums & Memorials
Honor or memorialize someone important in your life, or someone who had a huge impact on Hocking College and the students we serve. Gifts of any size may be made in honor or memory of a loved one, friend or colleague, or business, or to commemorate a special occasion. For a truly meaningful way to honor someone, consider setting up an endowed scholarship. Contact us for more information.
The Hocking College Foundation currently administers more than 30 different scholarships and can help establish new scholarship opportunities.
Endowed scholarships exist in perpetuity. Gifts to the fund are invested for long-term growth, and amounts are awarded from earnings on the principal. Minimum gift amount for an endowed scholarship is $10,000.
If an endowment is established with less than $10,000, it will be considered an "emerging endowment" and all earnings will go into the principle until the $10,000 level is attained. If the emerging endowment does not reach its $10,000 corpus (minimum balance) within five years, the entire principal amount will be transferred to a restricted account to be expended in accordance with the original guidelines.
Named: Named scholarships may be funded either annually or one-time. To establish a scholarship with a title containing an individual or organization name requires an initial minimum deposit of $500. The exception to this is a memorial scholarship that can be established at any amount.
General: Gifts of less than $500 (or those where the donor does not wish to establish a named account) will be handled through a general scholarship fund. Gifts to the general scholarship fund may be of any amount and will be awarded in accordance with Hocking College procedures.
