Providing Financial Support for the University 

The Parent Scholarship Fund

In order to maintain the high level of excellence in experiential education at Kettering University, parental support is critical. Without the generosity of parents of current and former students, tuition would be considerably higher than it is today. Tuition simply does not cover the cost of an elite STEM education. When you invest in Kettering University above and beyond tuition, it demonstrates your belief in the quality of our institution, serving as a catalyst for larger gifts and grants from our alumni and our corporate and foundation partners.

The Parent Scholarship Fund helps provide our students with large university opportunities in a small college setting through scholarship support, extracurricular activities, and research opportunities. Whether large or small, your gift will be combined with the gifts of other parents, making a transformative impact on our students and our institution. Your participation, regardless of amount, matters most.

Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to the Parent Scholarship Fund. Gifts to the fund can be designated to specific scholarships, academic departments, or programs. You may also choose to make a gift in honor of your student’s graduation when the time comes. By making a gift of $25 or more, a special message from you to your graduate will be included in the Commencement program. Gifts may be made over the phone, online at, or by check made payable to Kettering University and sent to:
