Ways to Give

Support for Students

Private scholarship support remains the key to attracting an outstanding student body.  A gift of a named scholarship provides financial support to help bright, talented, and committed young people fund their education, both on the undergraduate and graduate levels, and can be used to provide financial assistance or to reward top student achievement.

Support for Faculty

Endowments help us to maintain and enhance URI’s tradition of faculty excellence.  Examples include the establishment of faculty chairs and professorships intended to recruit and retain accomplished scholars, support for innovative new research and projects, and improved classrooms and laboratories.

Program Support

Special opportunities for student travel, lectures and departmental initiatives crucial to the College of the Environment and Life Sciences’ student’s education are just a few examples of programming made possible by individual gifts.  Whatever your specific interest, you have the ability to make a difference by supporting a specific program or department at CELS.
