We currently provide more than $17 million in financial aid, yet we are still not able to meet the full demonstrated need of all of our students. Endowed scholarships help bridge that gap.

One of the most prestigious and important gifts is an endowed faculty chair. Created by a gift of at least $2 million, these academic positions are supported by earnings from the endowed fund to enhance the faculty member's teaching, research and service responsibilities.
