Establishing an endowed scholarship provides permanent, sustainable funding for current and future students.

Endowments are invested in accordance with prudent standards that ensure long-term viability and managed to provide a maximum return on investment. Annual earnings are carefully reinvested to support future scholarships.

Establish a Scholarship

The minimum level to establish an endowment with the Foundation is $25,000, to fund an annual $1,000 scholarship award. Endowed scholarships can be established in several ways:

  1. Fully funding the scholarship at the time it is established
  2. Funding the scholarship through a multi-year pledge of three or more years
  3. Pledge periods for larger scholarships will be determined on an individual basis

Interested in establishing an endowed scholarship at El Camino College? Please contact Andrea Sala, Executive Director at asala@elcamino.edu.
