Information on the JUFA Alumni Scholarship Fund
The Jacobs University Foundation of America is committed to high-quality international education for all, regardless of nationality or financial status. Thus in 2015, we established the JUFA Alumni Scholarship Fund, to give hard-working students access to a Jacobs’ education.
The JUFA Alumni Scholarship Fund is an endowment model, meaning that no scholarships or rewards will be paid out of the principal of the endowment, but instead from the interest paid on the endowment. This is important because it is ensures the fund will be sustainable in perpetuity.
To respond to the desires of alumni and donors, the future scholarship provided by the JUFA Alumni Scholarship Fund will be merit-based, and available to students from all nationalities.
By the end of 2015, JUFA has raised $22,102 for the JUFA Alumni Scholarship Fund through generous donations from Jacobs’ alumni, family, and friends.
The current fundraising goal is $100,000 by summer of 2020. An endowment this size will ensure at least a 2000 Euro per year scholarship in perpetuity.
