Office of Development

Our mission is to build partnerships between the Institution and its friends and to solicit private financial support for the University. We work closely with the Troy University Foundation to raise money for scholarships, academic programs, new equipment, faculty and staff initiatives and more. In addition, we are actively involved with all current and future alumni in a myriad of ways through the Office of Alumni Affairs.

Support Like Steve!


Meet Steve Grissett, a 1971 Troy University graduate in Business Administration. After graduation, Steve became a charter member of the Mobile Alumni Chapter and is a big supporter of Troy Athletics and the Annual Fund. Steve is our longest consecutive annual donor at TROY, with a giving record of 45 years. 

What’s Steve’s secret? He recognizes the impact steady and consistent support makes at TROY. Just as saving pennies in your piggy bank adds up over time, making a yearly gift to TROY – of ANY amount – adds up to make a big difference for students and our university. Contributions to the Annual Fund allow Troy University to provide scholarships, professional development support, and improvements in academic programs.

Troy University Foundation Marion Horne Beasley Scholarship 

Ms. Jane Beasley, a native of Barbour County, has endowed a scholarship fund at Troy University in honor of her mother, Marion Horne Beasley, who taught in Barbour County from 1936-1981.

During her lengthy career, Mrs. Marion Horne Beasley returned to TROY many times to pursue her love for learning, enhance her teaching, and acquire educational certifications, eventually earning three degrees.

Although she was primarily an elementary teacher, she also taught high schools classes ranging from English to biology, and she was proficient in all of them.  A former student said of her, “She was smart as a cricket  .” She remained devoted to learning and teaching, and for that, she was beloved by her family, students, colleagues, and community.  This scholarship fund honors her and expresses appreciation to Troy University for providing her with the opportunity to pursue her love for learning over a period of 40 years.

Quite appropriately, the scholarships provided by this fund will reward mature women who pursue teaching degrees or certification.  Preference will be given to rural educators and residents of Barbour County.  

Ms. Jane Beasley is a 1974 graduate of Troy State University.  She taught at Eufaula High School before attending law school at the University of Kentucky, graduating (J.D. degree) with honors, including the Law Review and Order of the Coif.  She has gained recognition for her legal expertise in securities law and corporate mergers and acquisitions.

Interested applicants can complete the interest form, or current students can apply here. Deadline to register for the 2022/2023 academic year is March 27th.
