Samford Parents Scholarship Celebrates Five Years!

This campaign ends on January 1 at 01:30AM EST

Samford parents find joy and pride in watching their students walk through the Samford experience. That is why it is so important to us to help other students and families realize their Samford dream, especially when some families are in desperate need of our help.

We invite you to join us in giving to the Samford Parents Scholarship Fund. We want to continue to bring Samford parents together to help each other in times of need. Growing the scholarship fund each year ensures that it is available to help students who face unexpected financial hardship in their last year of college.

As part of the Forever Samford campaign, the Samford Parents Scholarship has seen what started as a grassroots effort turn into a Samford tradition.  We now celebrate five years of supporting students!  

Sara Grace is now one of eight students who have received support during challenging times through the Samford Parents Scholarship.
