To encourage new donors to establish PhD Fellowships, Joseph and Shirley Carleone have generously committed $120,000 to a matching gift fund.
Dean’s Priorities Fund
Gifts to the Dean’s Priorities Fund allow the Dean to meet her highest priorities by having easy access to funding quickly. Gifts to the Dean’s Priorities Fund support student lounge renovations, travel stipends for students and faculty, staff retention efforts, and seed funding to launch special programming. Every dollar to the Dean’s Priorities Fund, large or small, makes a difference.
As an RI research institution, the need for new PhD fellowships in the College of Engineering is critical. Graduate students play a key role in the academic environment of an institution and faculty members rely on their support while teaching and conducting research. And whether they go into industry or academia, graduate students' career accomplishments highlight the quality of Drexel. To fully fund a PhD fellow, $28,000 per year is needed.
Operation Graduation is a special initiative for our seniors. Operation graduation dollars are emergency financial aid funds that students can apply for if they experience financial hardship, which could prevent them from graduating. To qualify for Operation Graduation funds, a student must be in good academic standing and in need of funds specifically to get them to Graduation Day. This is a great way to help a rising engineer finish his or her degree without additional financial burden.
Senior Design Projects
Senior Design has a long-lasting tradition at the College of Engineering. Many alumni fondly remember their senior design projects, even starting their own companies from their capstone project. Each senior design team is comprised of 4-5 seniors within a major. The teams require an average of $5,000 per project to execute/build their design.
Scholarships often make the difference in whether talented students can attend and afford Drexel. Scholarships allow students to focus more exclusively on academics and to pursue extracurricular opportunities that lead to learning and personal growth. As a recruiting tool, scholarships help the university attract outstanding individuals to campus.
