Support the College

You can make an impact in CLAS. Support our community of students and scholars, and you'll give the gift of a life-changing education.


Ways to Support the College

Undergraduate Scholarships

Scholarships give CLAS undergraduates the resources they need to pursue a diverse, modern liberal arts education. A gift to support student success opens up a world of possibilities for our leaders of tomorrow.

"I've had so many opportunities at UConn that helped me figure out what I'm really interested in, and my scholarships have made that possible. I have two other siblings that are looking to go to college, so it lessens the burden on us. I'm really thankful."

- Shreya Sreenivas '22 (CLAS), physiology and neurobiology major; Holster Scholar

Graduate Fellowships

Graduate fellowships give scholars starting out in their careers the freedom to develop their own innovations and bring new knowledge to the students they teach.

I'm studying perceptions of public health services in Honduras. My fellowship made it possible for me to focus directly on research full-time, and I'm really grateful for that opportunity."

- Jose Hasemann, anthropology Ph.D. student; CLAS Graduate Fellows Fund recipient

Dean’s Fund

The CLAS Dean’s Fund provides resources for programs that impact our diverse faculty and student body, like the McNair Scholars Program. A gift to the Dean's fund allows the Dean to support student and faculty travel, visits by distinguished scholars, faculty research, and more.

"The McNair Scholars Program launched me into doing research. I don’t have the guidance in my immediate family to help me through college. Having a community of other students in the same position as me really boosted me up."

- Amanda Pastore '20 (CLAS), ecology and evolutionary biology major and geosciences minor; McNair Scholar

Faculty Endowments

Endowed professorships and chairs help the College attract top faculty and create opportunities for professors to expand their research and innovative teaching approaches. View our endowed chairs.

"I am deeply honored and grateful to the Draper family for their generosity and commitment to the humanities. I envision this chair enhancing the teaching and research of history at the University."

- Manisha Sinha, James L. and Shirley A. Draper Chair in American History
