What are the endowment earnings used for?

Earnings from the Luther College endowment are used for many purposes. Scholarships for students, teaching and learning resources, library books and materials, program enrichment, and student/faculty research projects are prime examples. At Luther, as at most colleges, it costs more to educate a student than what a student pays in tuition. The difference between what it costs and the tuition paid is provided by endowment earnings and by sources of current support, such as grants and annual fund gifts.
