Disability Studies Discretionary Fund (315679)

The Disability Studies Program welcomes donations to build important academic programs, including the following: scholarships and internships for Disability Studies minors; fellowships or travel funding for graduate students working on research projects in Disability Studies; workshops and lectures on Disability Studies topics; an endowed chair in Disability Studies; and other possibilities to be named by donors. Because the program is interdisciplinary and not affiliated with any specific department, we do not have an operating budget from the university. Thus, we also welcome funds that support our general operations, such as administration and public relations. Our program is especially focused on community-building and mentoring among undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty, and we welcome donations aimed at these goals.
