How do gifts help students and faculty?
When you give to students at Colorado State University, you make a profound difference in the lives of CSU students. Scholarships drive the spirit, and guide the minds of generations of Rams, so they can affect the world in productive and inventive ways.
Scholarship support strengthens CSU by connecting alumni, faculty, and supporters with students. Such support is crucial to the recruitment and retention of students, and for enhancing their experiences. Some of the best and brightest high school students can't afford today's tuition, but scholarships open up a world of possibilities to them. Scholarships also free students from the necessity of part-time jobs, giving them more time to satisfy their intellectual curiosity or to participate in CSU's character-building organizations.
When you invest in our faculty, you're giving CSU an academic edge. Your support keeps CSU competitive with other top universities by recruiting and retaining the best teachers and researchers, which strengthens the University's programs and reputation.
Outstanding faculty – combined with the availability of scholarships – then helps attract the best graduate and undergraduate students to CSU. When you invest in the potential of CSU faculty members, your gift affects the lives of hundreds of students.
