Why Give?

Every gift to the UGA College of Engineering makes a difference.  Your gifts are visible in the quality of the amazing students we attract; in the expertise and experience of our world-class faculty; in the high-tech labs, classrooms, and collaborative spaces we envision in a newly-renovated Driftmier Engineering Center; in the ground-breaking research being performed by our faculty and students; and in the life-changing experiences and global perspectives of our students who are scholarship recipients or have studied abroad.

 The support of individuals like you is empowering us to provide our students with the transformative engineering education and foundational experiences that set UGA students apart from their peers at other institutions.  We couldn’t do what we do without you, and we hope you will partner with us in developing leaders who will build the better future we all know is possible.


Scholarships and fellowships are the most impactful way to support students directly.  You may contribute to the College’s scholarship support fund, or create a scholarship or fellowship of your own.  These types of gifts enhance our mission to produce graduates who are intellectually passionate, globally minded, and committed to enriching the world around them.


Success breeds success; attract one world-class faculty member, and you are able to attract not only other top-notch faculty, but top-notch students as well.  By investing in the potential of one faculty member, you impact the lives of hundreds of students.


By making a discretionary gift to the College, you impact our flexibility to apply resources where they are most needed.  These types of gifts can truly shape our future.


Our College is rapidly growing and expanding.  An investment in facilities impacts our ability to attract quality students and improve the spaces they visit every day.  The collective power of these gifts allows our students to access amazing possibilities to spark their intellectual growth and prepare them for future success.
