A gift to student scholarships can open up a world of opportunity to current and future Drury students. Scholarships create life-changing opportunities and make a direct impact on a Drury student’s future.

Named Annual Scholarships are given to students each year annually and provide needed, immediate funding to support current Drury students. To best support students, named annual scholarships are often a four-year commitment to ensure we can provide our students with support for the duration of their Drury education. The minimum amount required to start a named annual scholarship is $10,000.

Endowed Scholarships provide lasting impact by creating a permanent funding source that will grow over time and will support current and future students. In order to create a scholarship that will provide the greatest benefit for students, the minimum amount required to start an endowed scholarship is $25,000.

To give to a scholarship or create a scholarship in the name of a loved one, please contact Teresa Skidmore in the Office of University Advancement at (417) 873-7826 or email
