Facility Naming

Commemorative or memorial gifts to the College enable donors or their loved ones to have buildings, portions of buildings, classrooms, outdoor areas, or other facilities at the Niceville campus and other college centers named in their honor. Gifts for a facility naming program will be used to establish an endowment to provide the College with funding support for the future.

Facility naming opportunities provide unsurpassed recognition for your corporate gift, a lasting memorial for a loved one, or recognition of your own individual commitment to educational excellence. Your generous contribution to a facility naming will be presented and acknowledged by current and future generations.

Scholarships

Scholarship awards are not meant to cover 100% of a student's educational Scholar and Thomhavescosts, but are intended to supplement a student's educational funding. Donors may include special criteria for a scholarship award, such as financial need, academic achievement, pursuit of a particular course of study, residence within a particular locale, or some combination of these.

The award amount provided to each student varies by scholarship and is subject to the Foundation's scholarship disbursement guidelines. Endowed scholarship award amounts are determined by the Foundation's spending policy. Click here for a list of current endowed scholarship funds.

Teaching Chairs

The Teaching Chair program at Northwest Florida State College is designed to enrich student achievement by recognizing the strength of the College, its teaching faculty, and instructional departments.

Teaching Chairs have traditionally been associated with universities to lure pre-eminent researchers to a college. The Endowed Teaching Chair Program at Northwest Florida State College molds the tradition into the college by encouraging excellence in teaching by providing financial support to an innovative department.

Funds for each Endowed Teaching Chair are provided from a private contribution starting at $50,000. Distinguished Endowed Teaching Chairs are established from private contributions starting at $100,000. The interest from this permanent endowment provides annual support to a pre-determined academic department.

The determination of Endowed Teaching Chair awards is made based on a combination of guidelines established by the donor and those developed by the college in concert with the Foundation. Each Endowed Teaching Chair is established in the name chosen by the donor.
