Celebrate Alumni

Class Scholarships

As we often hear from our alumni, a Culver experience has the ability to lay the foundation for lifelong relationships and a successful future. It is with this in mind that Culver remains committed to providing access to a Culver education for all deserving students, regardless of financial need. Through the benevolence of our loyal alumni and friends, the dream of a Culver experience becomes a reality for many students thanks to generous financial aid and scholarships.

A number of our graduating classes have established endowed scholarships over the years to cover the financial aid and scholarships that Culver offers to students. This support not only allows our students to benefit from an excellent education but also ensures that the values and ideals that this institution represents will endure. A world of possibility awaits.

 

Featured Scholarship

Class of 1968 Memorial Scholarship
This endowed scholarship was originally established in 1991 to honor Owington “Gordie” Delk ’68 who, “would love, in the truest sense of the word, for other young people to be given a similar opportunity to develop each of their talents to the fullest.” The scholarship was re-established on the occasion of the Class’ 50th Reunion to honor all deceased classmates and to provide financial aid for CMA and CGA students, with preference given to Class legacies. It is their intent for the scholarship to become a means through education to help create equal opportunity for those who would otherwise not be able to attend Culver.
