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 more resources in terms of personnel, laboratory space & equipment, etc. The needs here are for--
- Endowed-Named Professoships: Endowed funds that can generate income to support new teaching professors indefinitely.
- Named BME Educational Laboratories: Expendable funds to renovate and endowed funds to maintain appropriate space for educational cell and tissue culture laboratory courses.
- BME Equipment Fund: Expendable funds to purchase equipment needed for BME educational laboratories.
