Graduate School of Arts and Sciences
GSAS is a hub of discovery across the disciplines, preparing graduate students for lifelong success in many careers and enhancing undergraduate education throughout campus. The support of alumni and friends for fellowships, the Teaching Center, and other critical initiatives will help ensure that some of the most talented students in the world continue to acquire the expertise and habits of mind essential for leadership, within academia and beyond.
Click here to view the 2010 GSAS Annual Report of Giving, celebrating the commitment of alumni and friends who help provide financial aid to graduate students with gifts to the GSAS Annual Fund and graduate fellowships.
GSAS Annual Fund
Provide critical funding for areas of greatest immediate need, particularly financial aid.
Supporting both new initiatives and ongoing projects, gifts to the GSAS Annual Fund give the Dean the flexibility to respond quickly to emerging opportunities. Each year, your gift has a direct impact on the educational experience of graduate students at Columbia.
Provide a summer stipend for a graduate student pursuing research for a thesis or dissertation.
GSAS Named Annual Fellowship
Name an annual fellowship to help support a deserving GSAS student for one year.
Master's Degree Financial Aid
Endow a fund to support one master's degree student each year, allowing GSAS to attract top students regardless of their financial constraints.
Currently, the Graduate School does not have any financial aid available for students pursuing master's degrees. You can change this.
GSAS Fellowship Match
Endow a GSAS fellowship to train future generations of scholars and scientists.
Establish a named fellowship for students in GSAS with a gift of $100,000 or more. John Kluge '37CC will match your gift on at least a one-to-one basis.
Endowed Dissertation Year Fellowship
Fund one fellowship each year enabling a Ph.D. student to write a dissertation.
Thanks to the generosity of John Kluge '37CC, a $250,000 gift is matched on a one-to-one basis, creating a $500,000 endowment. This endowed gift frees a fifth-year student from the obligations of teaching or other employment.
Fully Endowed Graduate Fellowship
Endow a full graduate fellowship, named in your honor (or for someone you designate), to help GSAS attract a top student and to minimize the role debt plays in career choice.
Thanks to the generosity of John Kluge '37CC, a $500,000 gift is matched on a 1:1.5 basis, creating a $1,250,000 endowment. This gift provides one student each year with all tuition and fees as well as a stipend. Fellowships can forge a strong and meaningful three-way relationship between the donor, the School, and recipients.
Columbia University Teaching Center
Strengthen the instructional and communication skills of teaching fellows through workshops, conferences, and one-on-one consultations by endowing the Teaching Center.
The Center enhances undergraduate education across campus, from chemistry labs to Contemporary Civilization and Literature Humanities sections. This gift will allow the Center to sustain and advance its programs.
