Endowed Gifts

An endowment in the College of Sciences and Engineering is a gift that is intended to permanently support a College program. The endowment fund remains intact in perpetuity, while its earnings support students, faculty, and programs designated by the donor.

Endowments allow the College to create and maintain excellence in academics beyond what can be accomplished with funding from the state. Endowments provide the funds for scholarships, fellowships, professorships, academic chairs, and programs that serve as crucial elements in student and faculty retention and recruitment.

A minimum of $50,000 is required to establish an endowment. Endowments can be established with cash gifts, securities, or liquidated property. They may also be funded through a bequest or other deferred gift, or through a combination of lifetime and deferred gifts.

For more information about endowments, contact Dr. Toni Jackson at or via 225-681-3969.
