Faculty support provides important seed funding for new research and a leg up to early career scholars, helping them to establish themselves, make connections with other scholars, and represent their work as an integral part of the UC Davis School of Education’s research.
Donors are invited to make an annual gift to support students and faculty or establish an endowment. An endowed fund is invested in perpetuity. Each year income from the fund (but not principal) is expended, following UC Regents and UC Davis Foundation guidelines, to support the donor’s stated purpose.
Examples of endowment funds established in the School of Education include:
Endowed Chairs to honor and promote the work of a faculty member who is acknowledged as among the preeminent scholars in his or her field, and whose work has made a significant difference to society.
Teacher Scholarship Awards made to graduate students recognize and support particular accomplishments by graduate students, graduate student-mentored teaching, and individual research by graduate students. Can be used for travel awards and/or research awards.
Donors can establish an endowment in the School of Education by contacting Angela Reynolds, Associate Director of Development, via email at email@example.com or by calling (530) 752-8053.
