Scholarship Giving

What is scholarship giving?

Scholarships directly impact students and can be the difference between simply going to school and the opportunity to study, compete, work, and play in a vibrant Christ-centered community.

Why give to scholarships?

Student scholarship support ensures that Dordt remains competitive, helps to maximize value, and is economically feasible for any student who desires to pursue a Christ-centered education.

Options to give to scholarships:

Alumni Scholarships

Each year, Dordt University alumni make a tangible difference in the lives of over 40 students through their support of the Alumni Scholarship Drive. Helping to fund $1,000 scholarships for freshmen and $2,000 scholarships for upperclassmen, alumni play an important role in a student’s decision to attend and continue at Dordt.

The Rooster Booster Scholarship

The Rooster Booster Scholarship is funded by close friends and strong supporters of Dordt University who share a love of pheasant hunting. Since 2006, Rooster Boosters have raised more than $1.5 million in scholarships.
