Gifts from alumni and friends provide the vital fuel for EAPS education and research. Graduate students power our research! You can support a graduate student by making a gift to a fellowship fund. Gifts to the EAPS Discretionary Fund are also critical as they can be used to meet all student or faculty needs. Every single gift to EAPS makes a difference!

EAPS Research Support Fund (3857220)

Funding specific research efforts allows faculty and students to follow their curiosity and conduct cutting-edge research which may not attract federal funding. Direct funding supports early-stage projects, as well as the purchase of lab equipment and supplies. GIVE

EAPS Discretionary Support Fund (2635100)

The financial flexibility of discretionary funds is critical, especially in an uncertain fiscal environment. This funding gives the department the ability to seize new opportunities and address pressing needs as they occur. In the past, these resources have been used to seed new ideas, to recruit and retain faculty, and to enrich the student educational experience. GIVE
