Futures Scholarship Fund

Open doors to new experiences and life-changing possibilities

Scholarships play a vital role in enabling talented students to study, regardless of their financial situation. Importantly they also promote a more diverse community, leading to greater learning opportunities for every student.

The reality of life for approximately two thirds of Notre Dame's students is that they must work part-time to afford the cost of their education as well as the cost of living.

Your donation to the Futures Scholarship Fund will help provide access to a Notre Dame education for talented students who may be experiencing financial hardship, and support the academic achievements of our students through scholarships and awards.

Endowed Scholarships

An endowment is a permanent, self-sustaining source of funding. Each year, endowment assets are invested and the earnings are used to support students through scholarships and prizes.Some endowment funds have a very specific purpose, such as funding a scholarship for an undergraduate student. Others may support general areas of need identified by the University as most critical.By establishing an endowment fund, you can create a permanent legacy of support. Naming opportunities are available for Endowed Scholarships.

Term Scholarships

Term Scholarships can be established for a set amount and time. For example, you may wish to create a scholarship which offers $5,000 over three years.These scholarships can provide financial support to students. You can also further designate a specific School, major, geographic region - the possibilities are endless.Naming opportunities are also available for Term Scholarships and can be renewed after the three year period.
