Student Scholarships

Shepherd students are motivated and resourceful in financing their college educations. Student fees and tuition continue to rise each year, the challenge to finance a higher education degree grows steeper. Private gifts through the Shepherd University Foundation directly assist deserving students who compete for privately funded scholarship awards.

Shepherd graduates strengthen our regional community as teachers, nurses, scientists, social workers, accountants, artists, and more. They provide an educated workforce to attract new jobs and create new businesses and jobs for others. They volunteer their time and talents as coaches, scout leaders, choir directors, and other community leaders, utilizing their Shepherd education to make a difference in the lives of others. Thank you for considering a gift to support student scholarships.
