Endowed scholarships are created to honor and/or memorialize special people such as: spouses, parents, siblings, teachers, coaches or grandparents. An endowed scholarship will live on in perpetuity. Only the interest on the investment will be used to support the annual scholarship allocation. These special scholarship funds not only provide important financial assistance to deserving students, but they pay tribute to those being honored and/or memorialized. They are truly “Gifts that keep on giving”.
"VCSU is very special to us. Not only because it is where we met, but because of the opportunities that we have had as a result of our time at Valley City. We hope that by endowing a scholarship, others will be able to enjoy some of the same experiences we did."
Ken '73 & Linda (Anderson) '73 Astrup
