Financial aid packages for Gannon students consist of scholarships granted by generous alumni and friends of the University. Keeping Gannon affordable to students is a top priority. Endowed scholarships are a permanent solution to the financial aid dilemma. Gannon presently offers over 200 endowed scholarships and the income from those scholarships helps almost 400 students each year.
Endowed gifts to Gannon can also help fund faculty positions, professorships, chairmanships, faculty excellence and study abroad programs at the University. The list of current endowed scholarships can be found at: Endowed Scholarships.
An easy way to fund an endowed scholarship is through a gift of securities. A gift of appreciated securities to Gannon is a popular alternative to a cash gift because it actually saves taxes twice. You not only receive an income tax deduction for the full market value of your securities, but you also avoid a capital gains tax on the appreciation.
