Donor Relations and Stewardship coordinates stewardship for non-departmental scholarship funds* (endowed and non-endowed). These centrally awarded scholarships include those administered by Office of Admissions, Office of Student Financial Aid, and Office of Instruction. Donors representing these funds will receive an annual expression of thanks—whether that is a letter from our team or a message from their student—along with personalized videos or opportunities to meet their recipient throughout the academic year.
We work closely with the Office of Student Financial Aid to follow federal guidelines ensuring that our scholarship recipients’ privacy is protected. If a student wishes to remain anonymous, it is his/her right to do so. While all efforts to illustrate scholarship impact are made, receiving the identity or a personal message from scholarship recipients is not guaranteed.
*Georgia Commitment Scholarships are excluded from this stewardship and handled independently through the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations. Stewardship for departmental scholarships is managed by the benefitting department.
