Giving

Your Generosity is Appreciated

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

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.
