I. Intentions of Donors

Alumni and friends (donors) have established the Dayton Arab American Forum Endowed Scholarship Fund at the University of Dayton (University).

II. Intentions of the University

  1. The University has created the endowment fund known as the Dayton Arab American Forum Endowed Scholarship Fund.

  3. All applications, on which the applicant has indicated that he/she is of Arab descent, will be sent to the Dayton Arab American Forum Board of Directors for their review and recommendation.
  4. Preferences are:
  1. Recipients shall be students of Arab descent who are majoring in Communication, or as a second consideration, those students who are majoring in Engineering and are of Arab descent.
  2. If no students meet either of the above criteria, the University will consult with the donors for input as to whether the applicant pool should be expanded or if they wish not to make an award in that particular academic year, with the earnings remaining in the spendable account for future years.
  3. Scholarship awards assist a student with the educational costs of an education at the University of Dayton and may not exceed the cost of attendance.
  4. Awards are made by the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid.
  5. The principal of this fund will be held in perpetuity and the annual endowment payout will support the purpose described above.  The University’s Board of Trustees will manage the fund in accordance with the University’s investment and disbursement policies.
  6. Any other individual or organization may contribute to the fund, and any such additions shall follow the terms of this agreement.
  7. The University may share the news of this gift in its publications and websites, as well as other media, as appropriate.  All news items will be published at the discretion of the University editors.
