We would not be able to award scholarships if it were not for generous donations from our alumni and friends. I thank everyone of YOU who has given us $100 or $1000 or in a few cases tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. Every contribution has gone to support student scholarships, student travel, professorships or other needs within SLIS.
We currently have 19 endowed scholarships. Our goal is to have scholarships for at least 25 students by 2015. We hope you can help to establish a new award or to add to the endowment of a current scholarship.
Gifts can be either through an immediate cash donation or a promise of a donation in the future or through other planned giving options such as a charitable remainder trust. We look forward to hearing about your ideas and plans to have a lasting impact on SLIS.
