UIndy Fund

Your gift to the UIndy Fund is one of the easiest and most important ways you can make a difference for the University of Indianapolis and students. In fact, 100 percent of UIndy students benefit from the UIndy Fund. Gifts are critical for funding academic resources, updating technology and laboratories, increasing scholarships, and enhancing student success programs.

Educator's Makerspace for the School of Education

Today's teachers must have the knowledge and skills necessary to prepare PK-12 students for an innovation-driven economy. Makerspaces compel teachers to deliver content through “learning by doing,” immersing students in real-world projects that foster deep learning and understanding. Furthermore, makerspaces engender employability skills required by the innovation-driven economy in which colleagues share and build on each other’s ideas, co-construct knowledge, and create beneficial societal outcomes. Your gift will help us build the makerspace and purchase equipment such as a laser cutter and 3D printer. Moreover, your support will help equip teachers with new skill sets which enable complex thinking, problem solving, designing, collaborating, communicating and creating for today's 21st-Century student.

Research Fellowships

When students incorporate research into a solid academic foundation, they not only build their skills as a researcher, they also gain knowledge through self-discovery and build independent critical-thinking skills. Student and faculty research at UIndy can be found across many disciplines. Through your support, a new centralized effort to support research fellowships will soon be a reality. Research Fellowships consists of a $2,000 grant which funds a student’s research project, supplies, and a faculty mentor stipend. Primarily for freshman and sophomores, fellowships offer students a chance to research with a faculty member early in their educational career. Your support will help make this a sustainable program for years to come.

Strength Training Room Equipment

UIndy remains committed to the health and wellness of all students and the athletic excellence of our student-athletes. The University ranks as one of the best NCAA Division II athletics programs in the country—consistently ranking in the top 20 of the Learfield Directors’ Cup for each of the last 12 years. Help us continue to invest in the health and athletic excellence of our students by making a gift to fund new equipment for the strength training room. Seven years of wear and tear—and significant advancements in strength and fitness training technology—make this upgrade a UIndy Athletics priority.


Increasing access to a UIndy education has always been a priority. Ninety-six percent of undergraduate students receive some form of financial aid, so your support is critical in continuing to make a UIndy education accessible to any talented, qualified scholar who seeks it. Your gift could be the deciding factor for their future as a Greyhound.
