Scholarships, Endowed Professorships and Chairs

Scholarships allow the College to attract the best and brightest students and help students afford their education. Scholarships can be endowed by a donor or funded on an annual basis.

Professorships and Chairs allow the College to attract and retain the most accomplished faculty members in their fields. Endowed faculty appointments are critical in allowing the Dean to continue building an outstanding teaching and research faculty at the Gatton College.
