The Pay 4ward Triple Match is back this November for our fourth year! This special time of year means you can make a meaningful difference for students in the College of Engineering and Knowlton School. As the holiday season approaches, you can give a gift now and make the maximum impact--your gift will automatically be matched 3 to 1!
This is all possible thanks to generous matching donors, including Pat and Jim Dietz (BS '69, MS '70, chemical engineering), Susan and Rob Savage (BS '83, industrial and systems engineering), and Tom and Lynn Davison (MS '75 computer & information science). Alumni from the last ten years are eligible for the match and that means all graduates since Dean Williams started his tenure in 2011 are eligible.
Choosing how you want to make 4x the impact is easy! When you support the...
- Engineering Priority Scholarship Fund or Knowlton Priority Scholarship Fund: Your 4x gift will reduce tuition for our most deserving students—last year these scholarships supported more than 80 students!
- Engineering Priority Fund: Your 4x gift will support initiatives identified for this year, including the Diversity in Engineering Action Plan, critical need scholarships and technology infrastructure.
- Office of Diversity, Outreach and Inclusion Fund: Your 4x gift will support college-wide training and workshops, a diversity lecture series, the Inclusive Excellence certificate training program for faculty and staff, employee resource groups, recognizing and celebrating cultural awareness months and diverse recruitment through national memberships.
- Department Scholarship Fund or Priority Fund: Your 4x gift reduces tuition for department scholarship recipients or supports program priorities of the department chair. When making your gift, please choose other and write in your department and scholarship or priority fund.
- Student Organization: Your 4x gift supports the specified organization and its needs from travel to speakers, supplies and much more. When making your gift, please choose other and write in your organization's name.
