Make a Gift

Support graduate student research, training and professional development.

Philanthropy and support from the local community is critical to the Graduate School’s mission of enriching and enhancing the careers of graduate students. Donor-supported travel awards and innovative fellowships allow students to share their research and educate the community – a critical part of any graduate student’s experience.

The difference that donors can make in the lives of students is immeasurable. Many talented students are committed to scholarship and research while facing a variety of challenges that require them to make sacrifices. Donor support at all levels enables the Graduate School to assist master’s and Ph.D. students in over seventy-five programs in overcoming these challenges.

Making a gift online is the fastest, most direct way to support the graduate community. You can contribute directly to any of the funds below.  

The Graduate School Student Support Fund directly supports graduate students by way of scholarships and awards.

The  Sandra Morgen Public Impact Graduate Fellowship recognizes and supports graduate students whose research has the potential to have a significant impact on society. 

The Graduate School Dean’s Excellence Fund supports the services and programs that enrich the graduate student experience.

Sending a contribution by mail is also possible.
