Economics Alumni Giving and Awards
The Department of Economics has greatly benefited from the generosity of alumni and friends who share in our commitment to excellence in the liberal arts and sciences and to the discipline of economics.
There are many ways to give:
Scholarships & Fellowships: Contributions can be made to existing gifts and fellowships or created in the name of alumni, faculty member, or a loved one.
Student programming or groups: Contributions can be made to funds geared toward support programs, groups or initiatives within the Deparment. For instance, an alumni can ear mark a donation to go directly to the Economics Ambassadors Group or toward support of student field trips
Economics Annual Fund: Contributions to this fund are added to an endowment, the proceeds of which support recurrent research-related expenses, including undergraduate Research Assistantships, the Department's seminar series, student and faculty conference travel, and others.
Facilities: Interested in having a conference room or a lounge named after someone? What about a courtyard? A generous donation like this made the fountain outside of David Kinley Hall a possibility!
Internships: Sponsoring a student internship is another way to give a gift. Private donors as well as companies offer these types of gifts in support of our students.
Awards: Awards are so such wonderful ways to acknoweldge accomplishments or contributions for those we value. Awards can be catered to the wishes of the gift giver and can be geared toward students in various capacities like leadership, studying a particular discipline, or toward other alumni.
