Consider supporting any of the following philanthropic opportunities:

Supporting Students

Supporting students is one of the highest priorities at Rochester. Donations can create new undergraduate scholarships, or contribute toward an existing one, as these are of vital importance. Competitive graduate fellowships and stipends attract the most qualified students.

See the undergraduate fellowships and awards and graduate fellowships and awards pages for information on our current fellowships.

Supporting Faculty

Endowed professorships help to attract and retain faculty of exceptional talent. They are also visible honors recognized across the University and by other top institutions. An endowed professorship can link your—or your loved one’s—name to academic excellence and innovation.

Supporting Programs

Help move the lab experience to the next level by providing resources to support people and state-of-the-art equipment and facilities. Or contribute funds to enhance the innovative workshop program that enables peer-to-peer learning and one-to-one interactions for students, teaching assistants, and professors—even in large lecture classes.

You can also help to fund the department's community outreach program or the essential instrumentation that makes computational biology and bioinformatics possible and keeps Rochester competitive within the rapidly growing field of data science.

Supporting Outreach

Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to the Department of Biology’s “U-ROC” (University of Rochester Outreach Committee) fund. All contributions will be used to enhance our expanding programs. To donate, mail your check to:
