Ways to Give

Scholarships provide a wonderful opportunity to support students and create a legacy. You can create these awards in your name or a person you wish to honor and create merit and/or need-based scholarships You have a variety of scholarship options, ranging from $1,000 one-time or annual scholarships to endowed scholarships with a minimum gift of $25,000 (payable over five years). Contact our development team for more information.

Like undergraduate scholarships, graduate student fellowships and assistantships recognize the academic and research accomplishments of our graduate students. The College of Education currently hosts the largest enrollment of graduate students among the university’s 14 academic colleges, so this support is vital in supporting the work of these students. You can make merit-based fellowship contributions through a one-time or annual contribution of $1,000 or endowments beginning at $100,000 (payable over five years).

An endowed professorship honors the donor and assists academic departments by providing the resources necessary to recruit and retain high-quality professors. Endowed professorships are naming opportunities and can carry your name or someone you wish to honor. Endowed named professorships provide salary supplements to existing salaried position professors. These supplements may also be used to supplement travel and research expenses.

A variety of other endowment opportunities exist with varying giving levels that can support needs at the college, departmental, and program levels. These can also support needs among faculty, researchers, administrators, and students.
