When you support scholarships, you give students a transformative sense of belonging, purpose, and personal growth. You help us shape a new generation of service-minded advocates ready to face the future and improve our world.
Now more than ever, scholarships are vital.
Tuition alone does not fully cover the cost to educate our students. In fact, it covers roughly 90%. More than 41% of our students receive tuition assistance or merit-based scholarships. This support is for current students; alumnae are not eligible.
For Carondelet to continue to attract excellent and diverse students, we must invest in robust scholarship and tuition assistance programs.
Support that Changes Lives
Why create a scholarship?
Vituity Cares is a charitable foundation focused on improving the health of underserved communities in the United States. The newly-created Carondelet scholarship will provide $4,000 per year to a student in who need who demonstrates interest in the healthcare professions. Dr. Theo Koury P’18, Vice President of Vituity Cares Foundation, believes that partnership with Carondelet to identify passion and talent—and seed it with financial support—is a key piece to addressing generational and comprehensive change in the healthcare space.
Establish an Endowment
Establishing a named endowed scholarship is a wonderful way to honor family members, friends or mentors. Endowed scholarship funds start with a minimum commitment of $50,000. The larger the gift, the greater the impact it has to relieve the tuition burden for deserving students and their families.
Endowments can be created through a variety of giving options, either during your lifetime or at the time of your passing. During your lifetime, you can fund an endowment with cash, securities, real estate, or a life-income gift. Donors have five years to reach the minimum fund balance of $50,000 to begin awarding scholarships. You can also create an endowment through a will/living trust bequest or via a retirement plan/insurance policy beneficiary designation.
