How do perpetual grants work?

The endowment endowment of the University of Navarra is composed of a generic endowment and a number of other endowments. Perpetual scholarships are those funds that its donors have wished to allocate to the Program at Alumni Scholarships. These donations are of the amount necessary to distribute each year, in fulfillment of its purposes, the amount equivalent to the cost of one scholarship average . In addition, it capitalizes a portion of the income it generates to maintain the purchasing power of the fund and thus contribute annually to the Alumni Scholarships Program.

The amount needed to endow the modified fund is estimated at €200,000. In this way, each year, it will be possible to finance a permanent alumni scholarship and perpetuate the report of the people who have given their name to this scholarship.
