The Impact of Endowed Fellowships
When you endow a graduate fellowship (i.e., a scholarship for graduate education), you alter the life trajectory of gifted individuals and help bring diversity and equity to your chosen profession. The ongoing funding stream from your endowment empowers the department to attract and retain remarkable candidates, broaden the learning community, and enhance the Weitzman School’s reputation and impact. The Weitzman School offers a special matching program for all gifts to endowed fellowships.
I struggle to find the words to express my gratitude. The support of this grant has been absolutely vital to my ability to be part of the fantastic architecture program at Penn. I don’t know what I would do without it.

Having this support really helped me navigate my plans for graduate school in light of the Covid pandemic. I was able to come back to the school and a community that gave me my foundation in design and it put me in a better place to start the next step of my architectural journey.
