The Impact

Your support creates a lasting impact.

Student opportunities such as these can elevate and enrich a program. These experiences might make the difference between whether a student is offered a position or is accepted to graduate school. 


Joel AndersonThe award that I received significantly eased the cost of my room and board, which will lower the amount of debt I will have upon graduation. It made it possible for me to take on the low-paying but high-responsibility job I love with the student newspaper while building strong relationships and furthering my studies as president of Philosophy Club.

Katie BergeThe Dean's Fund for Excellence provided me the additional funding to travel to and present at the Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology meetings in January of 2010. These types of meetings, invaluable for students, provide us an opportunity to present our own research as well as network, consult with other scholars and contact potential master's advisers.
