Scholarships & Endowments
Dunwoody is seeking $10 million to grow the endowment and secure long-term financing for scholarship and programs.
Increasing financial support through scholarships is not only a vital tool towards providing a Dunwoody education, but also an investment in the economic health and growth of our entire community. We seek gifts for scholarships to ensure that all students who have the interest, talent, and dedication to pursue a Dunwoody education are able to do so, regardless of their financial circumstances and without accumulating excessive debt.
General scholarships give Dunwoody’s financial aid and admissions offices maximum flexibility to do the most good for students.
Scholarships for Under-represented Students
To attract more students from under-represented backgrounds — including students of color — to technical education and careers, Dunwoody’s Youth Career Awareness Program (YCAP) helps high school juniors and seniors prepare for college-level studies and explore technical careers through a summer program and monthly workshops and mentoring during the school year.
YCAP students who choose to attend Dunwoody also receive a scholarship of up to $10,000/year for two years.
Scholarships for Women Students
To attract more women to technical education and careers, the College has established the Kate Dunwoody Scholarship Fund. The scholarship program celebrates the legacy of Kate L. Dunwoody by providing funding support to female students.
An endowment gift to an established Dunwoody fund creates a permanent investment that produces an annual stream of income.
Whether your endowment is to support students through annual scholarships or to create an endowed faculty position, you can create a lasting legacy in support of the College.
