Make a Gift
Now more than ever, educating the next generation “takes a village”. Tuition dollars help, but today they are not sufficient to provide the top-notch education we must provide. Private support is essential to our success. Endowed scholarships, fellowships, professorships and chairs, along with flexible unrestricted gifts can translate into real opportunities for our BioE students and faculty. The continued success of UW Bioengineering depends on your partnership with us.
Department Priorities Needing Your Support
Graduate Fellowship Support Fund: Our most important need is for graduate student support. Outstanding graduate students are essential to both the vibrancy of the learning experience and to the success of faculty research. The Bioengineering department is committed to recruiting the brightest students by offering a competitive package to fund their first full academic year. Your gift will help enhance our ability to attract the best candidates into our program.
Bioengineering Leadership Fund: Most financial support comes with very specific limitation on how it can be spent. This fund is a critical resource for the Chair, allowing the department flexibility to respond to emerging needs and opportunities. Your gift will promote activities related to the recruitment of faculty and special initiatives that extend the breadth of bioengineering research and education into the broader community such as symposiums and professional conferences.
Bioengineering Undergraduate Scholarship Fund: As tuition costs rise, Bioengineering is committed to providing scholarships to offset expenses for deserving students. Every year the department promotes academic excellence by awarding eligible students based on academic merit, research potential and financial need. Your donation to this fund is especially valuable to our students (and their families) during these times.
Rushmer Research Bioengineering Fund: This lectureship was created in 1985 to honor Dr. Robert F. Rushmer, founding Director of the Department of Bioengineering. The lecture attracts the foremost authorities in this diverse field as guest speakers; this annual intellectual and social event is the highlight of the year, benefitting an audience of students, alumni, faculty, colleagues in the Seattle community and corporate partners.
