A transformational education and partnership

Scholarships. Internships. Mentoring. Research. Study Away.

These life-changing experiences help students identify their strengths and discover their passion. They invoke reflection, ignite purpose, inform pathways and change lives. The Furman Advantage is a promise that every student will benefit from these transformational opportunities.

To date, Partners donors have changed the lives of nearly 700 students. Learn more about their historic impact.

Become a Partner

The Furman Advantage is a promise that every student will benefit from high impact student experiences and transformational opportunities. Your gift—to athletics, research, study away and internship opportunities—is an investment in our guarantee and an affirmation of our cause. Whether through an endowed scholarship or an annual commitment, your investment to Partners creates a named scholarship that makes The Furman Advantage a reality for every student.

Ways to Invest

  • Make an annual investment of $5,000 or more per year for four years to support students throughout their path at Furman.

  • Create an endowed fund to provide support in perpetuity. A philanthropic plan to reach $100,000 or more over 5 years creates an endowed fund and a lasting Partners scholarship.

Either option or a combination of them will allow you to select criteria for how the named fund can be awarded to students. And now, you may expand your impact by the generous matching opportunity offered by The Duke Endowment.

The Duke Endowment

Furman has a long history of support from The Duke Endowment.

In response to President Davis’ vision for The Furman Advantage, The Duke Endowment is again investing in our students by matching new Partners Program commitments. Dollar-for-dollar matching funds are available for annual Partners Program commitments totaling $20,000 over 4 years. In addition, the student awards from newly endowed funds in the Partners Program will be increased by 50 percent in perpetuity.
