Endowments – We seek to raise $15 million in endowed fellowships!

The greatest funding priority at Johns Hopkins SAIS is building its endowment… Our endowment currently meets less than ¼ of our financial aid need each year. Philanthropy has been growing in this area over the past few years, but we still are not able to meet the demand for fellowships. Help us fill this gap. Each year, over $3 million in operating funds are necessary to supplement philanthropy to remain competitive.

Michael White Endowed Scholar Match

There’s never been a better time to create a financial aid endowment at Johns Hopkins SAIS. Take advantage of matching funds to endow a fellowship for only half of the $100,000 minimum. Each and every year, endowments support the school not only during your lifetime, but for the generations to come. Between now and June 30, 2019, your endowment pledge of $50,000 (given over five years) will be matched through the Michael White Endowed Scholar program, so that once you fulfill your pledge, $50,000 will be transferred into your endowed fund for a total of $100,000.
