How Scholarships Benefit Students
What better way to impact the world than to impact the life of a young person preparing to enter it?
There are many worthy causes to support. Few, however, have the far-reaching effect of a transformed mind, heart and soul. St. Olaf College provides a distinctive education - one that produces graduates with not only knowledge, but wisdom; not only confidence, but compassion; and who are not only leaders, but servants. Today more than ever, our world needs people seeking to do important work in the global community, whether called to the corporate boardroom, hospital operating room or mission field classroom. And increasingly, those students need financial assistance to reach their goals.
Gifts to endowed scholarships and endowed programs directly benefit the student recipients by providing funding for them to study on campus and abroad, and to engage in research or experiential learning opportunities that would not otherwise exist.
