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.
