Three reasons to support the IST Alumni Society Trustee Scholarship:
- This scholarship is permanent.
The IST Alumni Society has raised over $50,000 to endow the scholarship, which means a portion (approximately 4.5 percent) is used to support students while the principle continuously grows. In addition, the University will match the amount given to students each year (an additional 5 percent).
- This scholarship is personal.
Gifts to this scholarship will not go into an anonymous fund. They help IST students who otherwise couldn't afford a college education or would be saddled with loan debt.
- This scholarship offers "bang for your buck."
Penn State is matching the scholarship payments annually, and it is very likely that your employer will match your contribution. You can also deduct your gift from your taxes. Visit www.matching.psu.edu to see if your company has a matching program that can double or even triple the impact of your gift.
This is a unique opportunity to make a significant impact on the lives of prospective students.
As an IST alum, you know firsthand the benefits and advantages of your education. The IST Alumni Society Trustee Scholarship offers a unique opportunity to put that same education in more students' reach.
