The Urgent Need for Endowed Financial Aid: How You Can Help

Support for Our Students, Now and in the Future

Endowed scholarships provide support, generation after generation, to deserving Hopkins students who are making a difference in the world.


Help Our Students, and Help Johns Hopkins

Securing more endowed financial aid for undergraduate and graduate students is an urgent priority of the Rising to the Challenge campaign. Why? Through investments, endowed scholarships and fellowships produce a return that:

  • Provides funding in perpetuity, so that generation after generation, we can help students and their families choose a Hopkins education, rely less on student employment, and graduate with lower debt.
  • In the case of undergraduate scholarships only, is eligible for the President's Match, a dollar-for-dollar match started during the Rising campaign that doubles the output of the endowed scholarship. 
  • Helps Johns Hopkins compete more successfully for students against peer institutions, which have built up their endowments over much longer periods of time.
  • Helps students, and Johns Hopkins, withstand the uncertainties of government support and the financial markets.

Our campaign goal is to raise $115 million in new endowed funds, twice the amount as compared with our previous campaign. We are counting on you to help. 

How to Create an Endowed Scholarship or Fellowship

Endowed scholarships can be established with a minimum gift of $100,000, the output from which, when combined with other forms of support, will enable many students to afford Johns Hopkins and select us over peer institutions. Gifts at higher levels will allow us to do even more.
