Two-thirds of Old Dominion University students rely on financial aid to achieve their dreams, and 70 percent of this aid consists of student loans. Although Old Dominion is one of the best educational values in the Commonwealth, the University's current endowment per full-time student is $8,055. This leaves the average Old Dominion undergraduate with $15,000-$20,000 of student loan debt upon graduation. Scholarship support can make the difference between completing an education or not. Private donors have funded nearly all scholarships at Old Dominion University.
An initial investment of $25,000, payable over five years, will establish a named, endowed scholarship. The principal is not invaded, and the income will contribute to the success of deserving students.
