How You Make a Difference

Funding scholarships

Student research has been a long-time priority for two families who have seen the devastating effects of cancer. The Senger and Maher families established scholarship funds to support undergraduate and graduate students pursuing cancer research at ASU.

Promoting student research

Many scholars at ASU would rather trade their summer vacations for a chance to get ahead and make an impact in fields from philosophy to chemistry. Thanks to the Undergraduate Summer Enrichment Awards, they can accomplish these goals.

Fostering engagement

The McCain Institute Policy Design Studio and Internship Program helps juniors and seniors from various majors gain hands-on experience in foreign affairs, teamwork and leadership. Without donor support, many students would not be able to participate.

Featured Initiatives

Ensure Student Access and Excellence

Ensure Student Access and Excellence

Through Campaign ASU 2020, our college seeks to ensure continued access to higher education. Since nearly one-third of freshman are first-generation students with limited funds for college tuition, we aim to increase the number of scholarships available for these students so they can impact future generations. In addition, we want to increase funding for graduate fellowships and general scholarships to make it possible for all our students with the ability and ambition to pursue an excellent education.

Champion Student Success

Champion Student Success

Equipping students for success is a big priority for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. We believe access to valuable resources and life-changing opportunities will foster personal growth. Through Campaign ASU 2020, we hope to expand our Early Start Program, designed to help incoming freshmen succeed throughout college. In addition, we want to improve our opportunities for growth through internship scholarships, undergraduate research funding and international experience scholarships. 

Elevate the Academic Enterprise

Elevate the Academic Enterprise

Like the catalyst in a chain reaction, our faculty set off a cascade of effects to determine the quality of our schools, departments and academic units. Through Campaign ASU 2020, the college hopes to elevate the academic enterprise by gaining more funding for endowed faculty positions, which will help us mentor the next generation of problem solvers. In addition, we seek more support for our professors program, designed to attract and retain outstanding faculty while providing them support to excel. 

Fuel Discovery, Creativity, and Innovation

Fuel Discovery, Creativity, and Innovation

In the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, we have a unique approach to powering discovery. We go beyond traditional academic boundaries to unite faculty in research and teaching. Through Campaign ASU 2020, we want to increase access to further exploration while helping faculty and students conserve our world’s resources and become frontiers in health and medicine. From acquiring new instrumentation to increasing initiative endowments, we will fuel discovery, creativity and innovation. 

Enrich Our Communitites

Enrich Our Communitites

Through Campaign ASU 2020, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences seeks to improve the economic, social and cultural health of society. Opportunities for investment include the Physics Modeling Program to bridge gaps between the most cutting-edge scientific and mathematical literacy training, the Digital Humanities to advance transdisciplinary research for global challenges and the Center for Gender Equity in Science and Technology to increase minority women majoring in STEM fields. 

The meaningful impact of student scholarships

If you want to make sure your gift matters, consider investing in our scholarship funds. Our students not only benefit from financial assistance, but also the knowledge that someone from their community believes in them enough to help fund their education. Without your help, our students wouldn’t have this opportunity.
