SCHOLARSHIPS & ENDOWMENTS

Endowed funds are part of the permanent endowment of the College. Only the interest earned each year is used for the designated purpose; the principal remains intact. Commitments totaling $25,000 or more are needed to establish a named endowed fund. An endowed professorship requires a commitment of $250,000 or more, and $750,000 or more is needed for an endowed chair. An endowed fund is an excellent way to perpetuate interest in Tusculum College. Endowments can be designated for a variety of priority needs of the institution such as scholarships, maintenance, program support, campus ministry, or a professorship or chair in a particular discipline. Unrestricted endowments give the administration and the Board of Trustees the greatest flexibility in meeting priority needs.

THE INDEPENDENT PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH OF BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA, ENDOWMENT FOR CAMPUS MINISTRY was established in 1992 by a generous grant by the Church through the Bicentennial Campaign and increased in 1998 through the Tusculum College 2000 Campaign.
