Oprah Winfrey Endowed Scholarships Program

Oprah Winfrey's Legacy at Morehouse

Oprah Winfrey’s history of giving in support of Morehouse students began in 1989 with a $1 million contribution made during commencement exercises that established the Oprah Winfrey Endowed Scholarship Fund. Each subsequent gift has been added to the corpus of the Oprah Winfrey Endowed Scholarship Fund. Ms. Winfrey's total gift stands at $12 million. Her total contributions have set Ms. Winfrey apart as the College’s top individual donor to date.
