Support Students

Approximately 80 percent of Kroc School students receive some form of financial aid, enabling students to select their career paths for impact rather than to pay off student debt. We give preference to experienced peacebuilders from conflict-affected and underdeveloped countries and communities who are most likely to return to serve their communities.

Keeping the Kroc School experience accessible to a growing number of changemakers depends on strong financial aid powered by a growing endowment and annual scholarships. And a healthy endowment and annual scholarships depend on donors like you. Through your gift you are helping place skilled peacebuilders where they are needed most to make peace a reality.

Endow a Scholarship

Ensure that funds are available in perpetuity to help Kroc School students afford tuition, housing and other costs. Endowments preserve the principal of the gift and fund scholarships with the interest on endowment investments. You can add a gift of any amount to the William Headley Endowed Scholarship or endow another scholarship with a gift of $50,000 or more. Endow the future.

Support a Named Scholarship

You can make a gift of any amount to already established scholarships or create a named scholarship with a gift of $5,000 or more. The scholarship can be named for you or your family, or in memory or in honor of a loved one. Name a scholarship.

Give to the Kroc School's Master's Scholarship Fund

Meet a critical need by designating your gift for financial aid. Make peace education accessible.

Support Field-based Internships

Make a gift for field-based internships for students to gain hands-on experience in the U.S. or abroad. Gifts of $1500 or more include recognition in the Joan B. Kroc Society and the USD President's Club. Build practical experience.
