The department welcomes private support, which may be used for undergraduate scholarships, graduate fellowships, and for special activities such as seminars and lectures. Private support provides an edge for excellence. It allows us to reward top scholarly effort and to competitively recruit students and faculty.

Your Generosity is Appreciated.

A gift to the department may be made in honor of a faculty member or friend. A gift may support an existing scholarship or fund, or it may create a new fund for current needs or an endowment to support programs into the future.

For more information about giving to the department, or to give by mail, please contact one of our CLAS development officers. Specific named funds for undergraduate education or graduate education in MCB have been created through the generosity of alumni or faculty members and families.
