There are many ways to help The School of Art and Design succeed.

Endow a scholarship
Named scholarships exist in perpetuity. Your gift today can honor a loved one or mentor until the end of time. Endowed scholarships are $25,000 and can be established over a five-year period.

Create a custom scholarship
To attract the most promising students, we offer a variety of scholarships. Gifts from $500 to $7,500 annually (four year commitment) can be successfully used to support our studios.

Don’t forget us when you’re gone...
The university can assist you in diverting a portion of your wealth to the School of Art and Design when you can no longer use it.

Yes, we’d like your car/boat/plane/house!
We’re fiscally creative. If you have property you’d care to gift to the University, we can turn it into student scholarships. Ask us how!
