Stifel Corporate of St. Louis made a $5,000 gift to establish the scholarship, which was matched with an additional $5,000 in proceeds from the Foundation’s Rotary Golf Tournament. Together, they were matched with an additional $10,000 through a University matching gift program.
The matching gift program is part of the Honoring Tradition – Inspiring Success Comprehensive Campaign through the Southeast Missouri University Foundation. This program allowed donors to make a minimum commitment of $5,000 to a maximum commitment of $10,000 through donation or pledge by March 1, 2014, that will qualify for a $1-for-$1 match.
The recipient of the renewable Stifel Corporate Scholarship will be a student enrolled at Southeast Missouri State University with a minimum 2.75 grade point average. First preference will be given to a child or a grandchild of a Stifel home office employee. Second preference is for a child or grandchild of a Stifel branch office employee in the University service area. Third preference is for a student majoring in the Donald L. Harrison College of Business. The University Scholarship Committee in conjunction with the Stifel Corporate Human Resources Office will select the recipient.
