There are several ways to fund scholarships at 塞迪斯史蒂文斯学院 of Technology. They include gifts of cash, 股票及证券, 遗赠, 信托基金, life insurance policies and memorials.
1. 名字d Endowed 奖学金
Established to honor or memorialize an individual, to create a corporate presence, or to promote the needs of Stevens College students, an endowed scholarship provides a permanent funding base from which scholarships can be awarded. A 名字d Endowed 奖学金 may be established with an initial gift of at least $25,000 or through gifts totaling $25,000 or more over a period of up to four years. An endowed scholarship will be awarded when the fund has sufficient earnings to reach at least $1,000 for an annual scholarship award, unless specified otherwise by the donor. It is recommended that scholarship criteria be as non-specific as possible in order to benefit a wide range of qualified students. Criteria that is too restrictive may not be able to be awarded in a given year. The donor or other interested parties may make gifts to the fund at any time.
Contributions of any amount designated for student scholarships are important as well. These contributions will be placed in the Thaddeus Stevens Foundation 普通奖学基金 and pooled with other scholarship contributions to the fund to achieve a meaningful award to a qualified student. All donors to the General 奖学金 fund will be recognized in the College/Foundation 年度报告.
Procedure for Establishment of a 奖学金
All requests from donors for information on establishing one of the scholarship types listed above will be referred to the Foundation Director for follow-up.

Company 学费 Reimbursement
If a company wishes to fund a student’s tuition (all or in part) in exchange for an employment agreement, this is defined as tuition reimbursement, 没有奖学金. 学费 reimbursement involves a contract between a company and a student of their choosing, and monies will go directly to the College’s tuition account. The Foundation will not be involved in this process. Options for recognition (i.e., at the program’s advisory meeting) will be offered. Requests for information on tuition reimbursement will be referred to the Director of 职业服务 and/or the Director of 金融援助.
