How To Create A Scholarship

Options for Minnesota Professional Engineers Foundation Scholarships

1. Endowed scholarship

An endowed scholarship is named for a person, company or organization. The money is collected from one or more people, invested by the MPEF finance committee and a percentage of the funds disbursed yearly for scholarships. The corpus of the endowment would remain in MPEF investment vehicles for a permanent fund.

There is a $25,000 minimum for endowed scholarships.

If the endowed scholarship collects more money, or the donor gives more than $25,000, either the amount of the scholarship could be increased, or MPEF could choose to give more than one scholarship.

2. One time scholarship

A one time scholarship is given by a person, persons or organization/company, with all the money being collected at one time or from one event, and all the money being disbursed.

3. Multi year scholarship, non endowed

A scholarship amount is pledged, over a period of years, with the money given each year and disbursed each year. It could be either named for the life of the pledge, for a group, company or person, or rolled into the general scholarship fund of MPEF.
