Thank you in advance for your gift to the College of Education. You will receive an acknowledgement of your gift from ECU's University Development Office, as well as a receipt.

With the loss of the NC Teaching Fellows Scholarship program, which supported over 200 of our students each year, and the increase in tuition, there has never been a more critical time to provide funding for our students who dream of becoming influential educators. There can be no greater goal than to provide students with the opportunity to receive an excellent education.
The Educators Hall of Fame recognizes and highlights the service of those educators to whom East Carolina alumni and friends are most grateful. This permanent recognition is displayed prominently in the Speight Building. Donations to this fund support a four-year scholarship offered to incoming freshmen who have intentions of majoring in education.
