Every Woman… Every Year!

Annual Giving through the NAASC Donald & Isabel Stewart Endowed Scholarship (DISES)

In honor of their contributions to Spelman's legacy, the NAASC created an endowed fund, the NAASC Donald and Isabel Stewart Scholarship, for the 6th President and his wife for their dedicated service to the College and its alumnae.

Over thirty awards have been granted to support students in the arts, humanities, social sciences, mathematics and the sciences. Your support, in any amount, is an investment that may assist the next generation of Spelman students to complete their education.

The annual scholarship is sponsored by the NAASC, and administered by Spelman College.
