Three years ago, the scholarship amount was increased from $4,000 to $6,000 per student ($750 per semester). The community is currently in the process of creating a Scholars Fund Endowment in order to establish larger scholarships for the future. The funds for the scholarships are raised from voluntary donations made by residents, resident clubs and staff members at Greenspring. 

Throughout the past 13 years, Greenspring has raised $1 million for the Scholar’s Fund.
