Donor Relations and Stewardship coordinates stewardship for non-departmental scholarship funds* (endowed and non-endowed). These university-wide scholarships include those awarded by Office of Admissions, Office of Student Financial Aid, and Office of Instruction. Donors representing these funds have the opportunity to receive a Recipient Notification Letter each fall and a Gratitude Report each spring, along with more personalized touches (like videos and a chance to meet the student) 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.
