We're Building a World-Class College
Support the College
There are many ways to support the college through a gift to the College of Sciences Foundation. Give now to create an extraordinary future for our students.
You can help. The Think and Do the Extraordinary campaign provides many opportunities for donors to make annual gifts or create endowments that benefit generations of NC State science students. And through the flexibility of planned giving, donors can include the college in their estate plans, an option that can offer substantial tax benefits.
Opening Doors for Students
No priority is more important than safeguarding our ability to extend educational opportunities to bright, deserving science students. At a time when costs are rising, undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships represent a lifeline for students and their families.
Nineteen extraordinary students benefited from the college's signature undergraduate scholarship program in 2018-19. Scholarship support helps these Solomon Scholars receive a high-quality education and make the most of their NC State experience.
Empowering Top Faculty
Outstanding faculty are like magnets; they attract other top faculty who, in turn, attract great students. Professorships and other endowed faculty positions help these researchers expand the scope of their world-changing activities, which often means offering exciting opportunities to students who will become the leading scientists of tomorrow.
Endowing a professorship gives a talented faculty member the financial support and creative freedom to pursue extraordinary work. Meet our professorship holders, and find out how this support enhances what they do.
Supporting the Future
Our scientists work with leading partners and use cutting-edge techniques and technologies to solve the most difficult problems and answer the deepest intellectual questions. Your support helps connect our bright scientific minds with the resources they need to find solutions to challenges that affect us all.
Statistics alumna Nancy Ridenhour is investing in students' futures by making a substantial planned gift to fund professorships, scholarships and experiential learning opportunities like study abroad.
