Giving To Bioengineering

Areas of Need

  • Bioengineering Opportunity Fund:  Unrestricted funds that allow the Director to meet urgent needs and take advantage of opportunities as they arise.
  • Graduate Fellowships:  Fellowship can attract top graduate students nationwide (and even internationally) and provide student support for one or more years.  Four-year fellowships are most desirable to students.
  • Graduate Scholarships:  Scholarships can be added onto fellowships, graduate teaching assistantships or graduate research assistantships, but are only offered for one year.  These can boost the basic offer to help a bring quality students to KU.
  • Biomedical Engineering Undergraduate Degree Launch Funds:  To launch a new degree will take new and substantial financial resources to support additional personnel, laboratory space & equipment, etc.  The needs here are for--
    1. Endowed-Named Professorships:  Endowed funds that can generate income to support new teaching professors indefinitely.
    2. Named BME Educational Laboratories:  Expendable funds to renovate and endowed funds to maintain appropriate space for educational cell and tissue culture laboratory courses.
    3. BME Equipment Fund:  Expendable funds to purchase equipment needed for BME educational laboratories.
