Are you committed to helping Auburn prepare students for a lifetime of learning and success?
Philanthropic support for undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships enables Auburn to attract exceptional and deserving students and provide them with the finest academic experience, unburdened by the financial stress of funding the entire cost of their education.
Student support can cover expenses associated with tuition, housing, study abroad experiences, conference opportunities, and other approved academic-related expenses. From partial scholarships to graduate fellowships, we offer a variety of options to direct your gift toward the area in which you have the greatest interest.
Do you want to invest in those who teach our students and prepare the next generation of leaders?
Faculty support in the form of endowed professorships and chairs enables Auburn to attract and retain the most outstanding faculty members. From the classroom to the laboratory, exceptional faculty members are the foundation of our academic and research excellence.
Endowments in this area, which include professorships, distinguished professorships, eminent scholars, and presidential chairs, as well as center or institute directorships and deanships, can fund all or a portion of a faculty member’s salary, benefits, or other expenses related to his or her position. These endowed positions are differentiated by their minimum endowment funding levels and purpose.
FUNDS FOR EXCELLENCE
Do you wish to support Auburn’s commitment to provide critical resources to its students, faculty, and programs?
Funds for excellence are an important form of endowment that create a reliable funding stream to support a variety of initiatives. These endowments can provide broad-based support for a college or unit’s general needs, flexible funding for a particular focus area, or funding for narrowly defined purposes, such as research in a given department or awards recognizing students and faculty for exceptional achievements.
In addition, endowments can provide a perpetual source of funds to create, enhance, or significantly expand the operation of a specific center or institute. At certain giving levels, and upon approval by the Auburn University Board of Trustees, new endowments can provide donors with the opportunity to name a center or institute for themselves or someone of their choosing.
