Giving for Tomorrow: Scholarships

DonateScholarships and endowments create a legacy that prepare UT, and its students, for tomorrow.

This year, The University of Tampa will award $48 million in institutional aid for students. Annual and endowed scholarships help fund that aid, allowing more students to benefit from an education at UT and helping to prepare them for tomorrow.

An endowment is an investment in the future of The University of Tampa. It is a gift that provides secure and vital support of UT’s educational mission and benefits students, faculty and programs.

The need for a stronger endowment has grown as the University has achieved national prominence and attracted greater numbers of students. While UT has had success in attracting and retaining excellent faculty, competition for the best professors and students is aggressive throughout the country. A strong endowment will provide the resources to support and enhance the University’s continued pursuit of educational excellence.

The University of Tampa welcomes contributions and pledges of any amount to the general endowment fund. Endowed scholarships can be established with a minimum $50,000 contribution with the interest given out in the form of a scholarship every year in perpetuity. Donors can help determine the scholarship's criteria, e.g. financial need, residency, minimum GPA, field of study or major, transfer student, etc. In return, the University assures sound stewardship of every endowed fund through an endowment agreement that outlines each supporter’s intentions. In addition, the University provides each supporter with an annual report on fund performance and status.

Many companies choose to give back to the community by supporting The University of Tampa, a University on the move with increased student enrollment in each of the last 17 years. This investment provides much needed financial assistance to deserving students while bringing positive publicity to the company. UT serves the corporate community by educating bright students from across the country and the world. Many settle in Tampa creating a talented work pool for corporate recruiting.
