Scholarships are an investment in what
matters most to parents and employers alike – our students. Our vision
is to ensure affordability while staying faithful to our historic
mission. This allows Grove City College to remain committed to what
matters most – the education and success of our aspiring students.
What is a scholarship endowment?
A scholarship endowment is simply a fund that a college uses to assist students to pay for their education. The fund may be directed solely as a need-based or merit-based scholarship, or it may contain specific criteria agreed upon by the donor and the college. The college has the right to invest the money to increase the size of the endowment over time and can choose to either supervise the process internally or rely on an investment manager to appropriately handle the funds.

alumni, friends, corporations, businesses and foundations have
wholeheartedly supported a partnership with Grove City College as we
work to keep higher education affordable. We want to make sure that we
reach those students who otherwise may not be able to expand their
knowledge and refine their talents in a college setting. Educating new
generations of leaders who posses a broad, global perspective is of
utmost importance. We hope you will join us and support our important
role in this endeavor. Financial aid is one of our highest priorities,
for we feel, as our our founder J. Howard Pew said, "without morals and
ethics, education is valueless."
