Funding Priorities for Investing in Eller
Supporting the Cycle of Success
When you make a commitment to support student education directly through scholarships, you help the Eller College attract exceptional undergraduates and graduates — which in turn builds the College’s profile and sustains the cycle of alumni success.
You can endow a scholarship fund to benefit students in perpetuity, make an annual gift to reward students immediately, or contribute to existing undergraduate or MBA scholarship funds.
Endow a Scholarship Fund
New scholarship endowments require an initial gift of $10,000. These scholarships generally hold the name of the donor — or are designated in memory of an individual — and can be directed to a specific department or designated to recipients based on criteria such as degree pursued, demonstrated need, or academic achievement. The initial gift is invested, and the interest funds the scholarship in perpetuity.
Make an Annual Scholarship Gift
Annual scholarship gifts require a minimum gift of $1,000 made in spring, to be awarded in fall. These scholarships usually hold the name of the donor, and our office will work with you to determine recipient criteria.
Support Existing Scholarship Funds
If you prefer, you may make a contribution to an existing fund:
Undergraduate Program Scholarship Fund
Your gift would support undergraduate achievers in one of the Eller College’s academic majors.
MBA Program Scholarship Fund
Your gift would help attract top MBA applicants to the Eller College’s Full-Time MBA program
Your gift would support existing endowments established to support students in a specific discipline or meet specific criteria (including program of study, academic merit, financial need, or other considerations) such as the Dr. Thomas C. Moses Memorial Scholarship Fund for Finance undergraduates or the Charles M. Pettis Scholarship Endowment for excellence in sales.
