Scholarships at Sion
The students of Notre Dame de Sion School are the heart and soul of Sion. When you support scholarships at Sion you open doors and change lives. You have the ability to turn the dream of a quality education into a reality by investing in our students. You can give students the tools to achieve the extraordinary by providing the means for outstanding scholars to reach their potential.
Contributions can be made to existing endowed and expendable scholarships at any time or you can establish a new scholarship. All contributions for scholarships are fully tax deductible. Scholarships may include a number of criteria, however, please keep in mind that the more broadly defined the criteria, the easier it is to award. Here are few ways to establish criteria:
· By grade
· By grade point average
· By zip code
Scholarship recipients are selected in collaboration with staff in the Advancement and Admissions department, and according to the donor’s wishes as stipulated in the fund agreement.
An endowed scholarship establishes a permanent asset from which students will receive support in perpetuity. The minimum funding level for an endowed scholarship is $25,000, which can be established through a one-time gift or by making a pledge to Sion. Once you have reached the minimum funding level, funds will be dispersed.
Expendable scholarships are distributed in the same year that they are received. An expendable scholarship can be established with a minimum of $250. The fund does not accrue interest and can only be awarded based upon the amount given. For donors who want to support scholarships for Sion students but don’t have a goal of creating a permanent award, this opportunity is an ideal option.
If you would like to make a donation to help fund an existing Scholarship, or would like to establish a new Endowed or Expendable Scholarship, please fill out the donation form with your gift and billing information. You will be contacted if further information is needed to help designate or establish your gift.
