Donate toward a young person’s future
Annual tuition at IUGB is $7,000 for full time students, and this can be an obstacle for many exceptional and deserving students who have a compelling need for support. For many of our students, receiving a scholarship makes the difference that allows them the opportunity to receive a college degree from a strong educational institution.
Any amount you give counts towards making an impact to our students.
Why set up a scholarship fund?
Establishing a Scholarship Fund can provide a source of funding for deserving students in need while providing a valuable sense of recognition and accomplishment to the donor.
Types of Scholarship Support
Gifts to Scholarship Funds are completely tax-deductible under U.S. law and can be made on an annual basis (renewable every year) or permanently endowed.
- A much-needed donation of $9,999 or less can make the difference between prosperity and a life filled with frustration and unrealized dreams for college-age students in Africa. IUGB is preparing young people for the present and the future with a solid education. Right now, only 5% of our students have access to scholarship. The need for scholarship for potential students is closer to 70%. We will need your help to close this gap.
- An Annual Named Scholarship provides direct funding which is renewable from year to year. To name a fund with specific criteria based on gender or the degree a deserving student can seek, we ask for a minimal commitment of $10,000 annually. These gifts are awarded in full in the year they are donated.
- An Endowed Named Scholarship can establish a fund that will provide ongoing support. A minimum donation of $50,000 will provide approximately $2,000 in scholarship support each year after an initial first year of maturity. Gifts at this level and higher will establish a named fund in perpetuity.
Recognition and criteria
Many donors who create Named Scholarship Funds do this to honor or recognize individuals and corporations with criteria that reflect their interests.
