Philanthropic support from corporations and foundations is something URI has been fortunate to have benefited from over the years. This support takes many forms, including gifts for endowment, faculty support, facilities construction, scholarships and fellowships, research, sponsorship, diversity programs, and access to education for under-served audiences, as well as support for public outreach, internships, and technology transfer.
Currently, we offer two corporate affiliate programs through the Graduate School of Oceanography and the College of Pharmacy to offer business and industry partners an inside perspective on the groundbreaking research and innovation happening at the University. To learn more about how your company can benefit from these programs or other strategic giving programs, contact the BEC staff.
