FUNDING THE SCHOLARSHIPS
The Daughters of the Cincinnati have contributed generously to the scholarship fund for over a century. During the last hundred years or so, the fund has seen recessions and depressions, great and small, but the Daughters have continued to support the scholarships generously, as have family foundations, Daughters’ employers, as well as scholarship graduates and their parents. But it comes as a surprise to no one that the fund cannot keep up with rising tuition costs.
In March 2013, the Daughters of the Cincinnati launched the Military Stars Campaign to continue its mission and better meet the financial needs of its scholarship applicants. Foundations and individuals may contribute in any amount to the fund or may establish a named scholarship at specific giving levels.
“I’m very grateful for the support I received from the Daughters,” writes Kathryn Powell, daughter of a retired lieutenant colonel in the Army and a 2013 graduate of Rice University.
“Your scholarship allowed me to go to a school where I was able to pursue my passion in astrophysics. I wouldn’t be where I am today without your help.”
Kathryn is now a PhD candidate in earth and planetary sciences at Washington University in St. Louis.
