ATLANTA—The Georgia State University Foundation has introduced The State Way Match program, an initiative to encourage investment in student scholarships through a dollar-for-dollar match on new eligible scholarship endowments.
Established through $5 million in Foundation funding, The State Way program matches the amount of each new gift that supports or establishes an eligible scholarship and meets the university’s endowed scholarship minimum funding level of $25,000. Eligible scholarships are university, college, school or institute-wide and based on the merit, need and/or talent of students in good standing on the Atlanta or Perimeter campuses.
“As much as ever, Georgia State students benefit from the meaningful financial support and academic validation that donor-funded scholarships provide and through The State Way Match program we aim to ensure that more of them have access to this kind of assistance,” said Jay Kahn, vice president of development & alumni affairs and president of the Georgia State Foundation. “This program enables our valued donors and friends to double their impact on the lives of Panther students while supporting the Foundation’s commitment to making significant investments in the university’s core mission.”
