Special Funds

Support of the College: As an independent, privately endowed institution, Carleton’s development has been made possible by the support of interested individuals, foundations, and corporations. Student tuition payments cover only about one-half of the College’s educational and general expenses. Most of the balance comes from gifts for current purposes and from income earned by the College’s endowment, which was itself provided by gifts.

Honorary Scholarships: WILLIAM CARLETON SCHOLARSHIPS, given to entering students in memory of the man for whom Carleton is named, are honorary awards in recognition of outstanding qualities of scholarship, character, and promise of achievement.
