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 September 30, 2013) the fund has grown to
over $289,497.73. 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
- Accelerate the continuous growth in the principle amount of the Golden Panther Endowed
- Growth in the dollar amounts and number of scholarships awarded to current and future
- Increase Golden Panther Alumni giving

It is the goal of the members of The Beckham Society to create educational opportunities
for current and future Ferrum College students.
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.
