Twelve new Excellence Funds in support of students and academic programs across the college
An $800,000 grant from the W. M. Keck Foundation of Los Angeles to the Department of Chemistry to develop a new technology for studying electrochemical properties through nuclear magnetic resonance.
Many new endowments to benefit students directly, including Summer Independent Research Awards, scholarships, travel awards, and internship support grants.
Encourage both graduate and undergraduate students to tap into the many enriching opportunities in A&S by adding to existing funds or creating an endowment for scholarships, internships, and/or research fellowships.
Study Abroad Awards
Add to this scholarship fund or create a new one so that more students can experience and gain understanding about our global society from fresh perspectives.
Establish a faculty chair in anthropology, botany, chemistry, geology, history, math, or zoology. With competitive faculty positions, these areas of distinction will gain prestige, attract even better students and colleagues, and earn more research grants.
Visiting professors and artists
Enhance the campus experience by introducing the ideas and creativity of renowned scholars and artists. Long-term visitors are especially important to interdisciplinary programs (American, American Indian, African American, Chicano, International, Religious, and Women's Studies), professional programs (journalism, creative writing,), and the arts. Create a targeted endowment or add to the Dean's Excellence Fund.
Distinguished Speaker Series
Broaden student exposure to new concepts, combat Wyoming's relative isolation, increase opportunities for stimulating exchange of ideas, and show visitors the remarkable quality of UW students by contributing funds to host distinguished speakers from all academic disciplines and careers, and from diverse ethnic, racial, and national backgrounds.
Facilities and equipment
Link your name to an enduring institution and show generations to come your commitment to and support of higher education. Naming opportunities accompany substantial aid to refurbishing labs, modernizing classrooms, and adding wings to buildings.
