Support GV Students
Grand View offers several opportunities for organizations and corporations to create scholarships for our students. Because so many of our students are Iowans and stay in central Iowa after graduation, your generous support can help the community create and maintain an educated, stable workforce. Your support can also offer opportunity to students who might not otherwise be able to work toward a degree. All of our corporate opportunity scholarships are awarded to capable students based on financial need.
Your organization can contribute at any level through these three options:
Corporate Opportunities Scholarship Program
Gifts of less than $5,000 are pooled together in the Corporate Opportunity Scholarship Fund, which is disbursed by the Financial Aid Office to students with documented need.
Corporate Opportunity Donor-Named Annual Scholarships
If your gift or pledge is $5,000 or more, we create an annual scholarship in the name you choose and disburse the finds within five years of the date of the gift or first pledge payment.
The student(s) receiving a named annual scholarship are given the name of the scholarship and information about its origin if the donor desires. Donors have input into the criteria for selecting students who receive their scholarships, in consultation with the Advancement Office. After details of the scholarship gift and criteria are defined, they are written into a scholarship agreement, which is signed by the donor and representatives of the university.
If the donor desires, funding of a named annual scholarship may be extended for additional five-year periods. If a pledge is made, payments may not be spread over more than five years, and a pledge payment must be made each year.
Corporate Opportunity Endowed Scholarships
With a gift of $25,000 or more, you can create a named, endowed scholarship. You can give that amount all at once or over a period of no more than two years, building up the fund until it reaches the endowment level of $25,000 or more. An endowed scholarship is managed to provide scholarship funds for an indefinite period of time. If the minimum endowment fund amount of $25,000 is not reached within two years from the date of the first gift, the scholarship will be considered an annual scholarship.
