William Randolph Hearst Scholarship Fund
Philanthropist William Randolph Hearst founded the Hearst Foundation, Inc. in 1945. In 1948, Mr. Hearst established the California Charities Foundation. That name was changed to the William Randolph Hearst Foundation soon after Mr. Hearst's death in 1951. Both Foundations are independent private philanthropies operating separately from The Hearst Corporation.
The Hearst Foundations support undergraduate education through the establishment of endowed scholarships at private liberal arts colleges and universities. In addition, similar support is provided for professional study in teaching, engineering, mathematics, science and the health care professions, at the undergraduate and graduate levels. As a general policy, grants are not made to publicly funded educational institutions. However, private organizations or coalitions seeking to improve and broaden access to public education may be considered for grant support.
Park University has been endowed by the Hearst foundation to provide Scholarships to our qualifying nursing students.
