By establishing or supporting a Lee Business School scholarship, you have the chance to affect transformational change in the life of a student, and sometimes, the trajectory of an entire family — for generations to come.

Your donation can fund a scholarship or help maintain an existing scholarship. Scholarships can support tuition, room and board, or funding for housing, food, books, living expenses, study abroad, service-learning projects, and research or internships. You will have the opportunity to meet the student/s and hear about the impact that the scholarship has had on the student's life. Scholarship awards and student research awards begin at $1,000 and named Scholars can be established with a commitment of $5,000 or more. Endowments of $30,000 or more will provide a permanent and named scholarship.

We invite you to change the lives of our students by donating today.
