How does the School of Engineering & Applied Science (SEAS) produce such outstanding engineers and computer scientists? A spectacular new Science and Engineering Hall, a fast-growing research enterprise, talented faculty recruited from top programs, and our unique location are the ingredients of our success—not to mention support from donors like you. 

Every gift contributes to our school and our students. A gift of $100 can provide transportation funding for students interested in attending national conferences, logistical support for student organization events, or scholarship support to students in need.

On Giving Day, please consider contributing to SEAS. As one student put it, SEAS is “an extremely small community” of faculty, staff, and students whose efforts are seemingly intertwined. Your contribution keeps our school vibrant and engaging.

“The Karlgaard Scholarship is what allowed me to pursue my master’s degree. The aid I received as an undergrad has allowed me to spend another year in school before starting to work full-time. Without the Karlgaard Scholarship I would have been pressed to start working right away instead of furthering my education.” - Billy Miller, SEAS BS ‘20, MS ’21


SEAS Student Aid  

Scholarships allow our students to pursue their dreams regardless of their financial means and are essential to recruiting and retaining a diverse student body. Often, there is a correlation between unmet financial need and academic performance. Gifts to student aid allow students to focus on their education instead of financial circumstances. 

School of Engineering & Applied Science Annual Support 

This fund provides resources for the school’s unbudgeted needs, such as support for faculty and students to attend regional and national conferences, requests for help from student groups (e.g., NSBE, SWE, Theta Tau), the annual Research and Development Showcase, and the Summer Undergraduate Program for Engineering Research (SUPER). 

SEAS Center for Women in Engineering 

Women are underrepresented in engineering and computer science (20 percent graduate with BS degrees in the U.S. on average). Support for women in engineering and the SEAS Center for Women in Engineering provides a vehicle for women to receive much-needed resources that will help them excel. These include professional development opportunities, research assistantships, mentorship opportunities, and internships that allow them to develop beyond the classroom. Over the past 10 years, SEAS has been committed to increasing the number of women in its undergraduate program. The first-year class now comprises 37 percent women on average, and in AY 2019, approximately 52 percent graduated with BS degrees in engineering or computer science fields. 

Knowledge in Action Career Internship Fund – SEAS 

The Knowledge in Action Career Internship Fund was created to encourage SEAS undergraduate and graduate students to pursue high-quality, necessarily unpaid internships that foster their career exploration and enhance their academic program while reducing the financial challenges associated with unpaid internships. Necessarily unpaid internships are typically those with nonprofit, governmental, educational, and non-governmental organizations that genuinely lack the financial resources to pay salaries or wages to their interns.
