    "This scholarship will follow me as a symbol for what reward can be had for hard work and determination." - Elli Teige, Scholarship Recipient

    Your Gift, Your Choice

    You can designate exactly where you want your gift to go to make an impact. Here is a list of funds.

    • Scholarships can be used to recruit high-caliber students and to provide access to a diverse group of students. Many existing scholarships are available, and new scholarship funds can be started with a $1,000 annual commitment.
    • Discretionary funding is key to enhancing the student experience through applied learning experiences, emerging technologies, and other opportunities.
    • Endowed funds can provide a lasting system of support that will continue for years to come by investing your gift and using only the earnings to provide scholarships or program support. New endowments can be initiated with a $25,000 commitment.
