Endowed Scholarship Funds
A large source of annual funding for financial aid is raised at the February "Concert for Financial Aid". Endowed Scholarship Funds are another source of income providing tuition to St. Andrew’s students. A scholarship becomes endowed once the value of the gift provides enough interest income to fully fund a year’s tuition.
We are so grateful to our community for their generous support of St. Andrew's Endowment Fund. Funds listed below are fully endowed scholarship funds.
