Golden Panther Endowed Scholarship
The Golden Panther Endowed Scholarship Fund was established in 1982 with an initial gift of $12,365. Since that time (as of June 30, 2012) the fund has grown to over $249,255.05. The fund has provided financial aid to more than 120 students at Ferrum College in the last decade.
The GP scholarship fund is listed in the official College catalogue. The principle amount in the fund grows from contributions and bequests from members of the Golden Panthers Club and other interested persons. The principle is commingled with the permanent endowment fund of Ferrum College and is invested according to the policies of the Board of Trustees.
Any Ferrum College student may apply for a scholarship award and priority is given to children of Ferrum Alumni who have demonstrated academic ability and intend to pursue a Christian vocation. Final awards are made by the President or a designee.
The goal of the Ferrum College Golden Panther IPTAY [I Pay Ten (or more) A Year] are to:
- Accelerate the continuous growth in the principle amount of the Golden Panther Endowed Scholarship fund
- Growth in the dollar amounts and number of scholarships awarded to current and future Ferrum students
- Increase Golden Panther Alumni giving

The Beckham Society recognizes alumni and friends who have made Ferrum College a beneficiary of a deferred gift through their wills, trusts, life insurance policies, gift annuities, or other deferred gift arrangements. The Beckham Society is named in memory of Ferrum’s first president, Dr. Benjamin Beckham.
