Endowed Scholarships

You can establish a scholarship endowment at Mills College with a gift of $50,000, which may be paid over a five-year period. Once your pledge is paid in full, your endowment will generate scholarships that support outstanding Mills students every subsequent year. These scholarships will bear your name—or the name of someone you choose to honor—in perpetuity. Read why Anne Marie Mersereau Kodama ’91 established an endowed scholarship at Mills.


Establishing an endowed scholarship gives you the power to provide life-changing education for generations of Mills students far into the future.

In recognition of your gift, we will inform you of the recipients of your undergraduate scholarship or graduate fellowship and provide biographical information whenever possible. We will also make every effort to introduce you to your students.

In addition, individuals who establish scholarships will be honored as members of the Cyrus and Susan Mills Society and enjoy invitations to events hosted by President Elizabeth Hillman, campus lectures, concerts, and other special gatherings.

You may restrict your endowed scholarships to help students who meet certain criteria that you designate, such as academic major or geographic region.


If you are interested in establishing an endowed scholarship or have any questions, please contact the Office of Institutional Advancement at donors@mills.edu or 510.430.2097.
