Endowed excellence funds allow us to innovate our work, support student activities, and react to emergencies and unforeseen opportunities.

Support Excellence Today and Tomorrow with a Permanent Endowment

Endowed funds enable us to provide more than 20 named scholarships and fellowships each year to our master's and Ph.D. students. Other endowments support the work of our talented faculty. Endowed excellence funds allow us to innovate our work, support student activities, and react to emergencies and unforeseen opportunities.

As permanent gifts that create available funds every year, endowments ensure that the iSchool will continue to attract the most qualified students and the highest caliber of faculty, and ultimately educate the professionals who will make a significant difference in our professional fields and for the benefit of our society.
