Senior Fund

Senior Fund 2018: Engineering Greatness

Our goal: $10,000 in support of financial aid, internship grants, faculty & research support, student life, entrepreneurship programs, and our departments!

What is the Senior Fund?
The Senior Fund is the Senior Class gift to the Engineering Fund, the alumni-driven fund that provides support directly to students. By participating in the Senior Fund, you join thousands of alumni and past Seniors in supporting the next generation of students at Columbia Engineering.

The Senior Fund supports critical areas of need: Financial Aid, Student Life, Entrepreneurship programs, Faculty/Research funding, and Internship grants.

What should I give?

The Senior Fund encourages you to donate at any level you feel comfortable. There is a suggested level of $20.18, in honor of the class of 2018! Every gift helps us reach our goals.

We do recognize Senior Fund donors who go above and beyond with their philanthropy with the Dean’s Leadership Society (DLS), which also recognizes outstanding alumni and friends of the School. As a Senior Fund DLS supporter, you are given special opportunities to interact with alumni and faculty.

Pioneer: $100
Invitation to pre-reception before Senior Dinner

Vanguard: $250
