The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science
Columbia Engineering offers world-class instruction within a major research university. Forging connections with Columbia's scientific, business, and policy resources, the School's faculty members work across disciplines, embrace innovative approaches to the world's most urgent needs, and conduct breakthrough research. Our students become leaders not only in engineering and technology, but also in business, economics, and public policy.
Enhance the educational opportunities for today's and tomorrow's students.
Gifts to the Parents Fund affect every component of a Columbia Engineering education. Parents Council donors provide significant levels of support to the Parents Fund and engage with the dean and faculty to support educational opportunities for students.
Provide critical funding for new initiatives and ongoing projects at the School.
Gifts to the Engineering Fund support the School's most urgent priorities, including need-blind admissions and full-need financial support for undergraduates, scholarships for the finest graduate students, recruitment and retention of top faculty, enhancements to lab facilities, and breakthrough research.
Endow a scholarship so that a deserving undergraduate can attend Columbia Engineering for one year.
Endowed undergraduate scholarships help talented, deserving students - including those from low-income families - to graduate without debt. With a gift of $250,000 or higher, a donor can endow and name a scholarship that will support one undergraduate student per year.
Support the initial stages of a Columbia Engineering-affiliated early venture or startup.
The Ignition Grant Program supports the initial stages of an early venture or startup. Individual students or teams with at least one Engineering student are eligible to compete for grants that range from $5,000 to $25,000, depending on a venture's development.
Faculty Research Fund
Invest in path-breaking research at Columbia Engineering
Gifts to the Facilty Research Fund support the research and intellectual endeavors of Columbia Engineering's world-class faculty. You can support research in areas of special interest to you by creating an endowed fund or making a current-use gift.
Support a talented Columbia Engineering graduate for one full year.
A graduate fellowship provides students with all the funds needed for his or her education for one year. Graduate fellowships make it possible for departments to attract the most accomplished students to their doctoral programs while boasting the School's prestige and supporting faculty research.
Career Development Chair
Endow a named chair to help launch the careers of talented junior faculty members.
Career Development Chairs support young faculty members as they establish themselves as leaders in their fields. These chairs are a powerful tool for the School to recruit exceptional young talent just as they conduct the research that will set them on a path of academic distinction.
Endow a chair to support research and enable the School to recruit and retain world-class faculty.
Creating a chair is the best way to recruit, recognize, and honor an accomplished faculty member, invest in a particular area of study, and link the name of a commited donor to a department, discipline, or area of research.
