The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) provides an exceptional educational
experience for students and fosters innovative research that will impact the state, the nation, and the world.

Now, more than ever, private support of teaching and research within ECE will be key to launching the
department to the next level of excellence. Support at all levels makes a difference and there are many
meaningful ways to make a gift.

Opportunities for Support

     • The  Hartig Fund provides general, unrestricted support to the department.    

     • List of Funds for Electrical and Computer Engineering support.

     • Endowed chairs, professorships, scholarships, and fellowships are the core building blocks
        for the department's future. Make a gift to a current fund, or create your own.

     • Estate Gifts allow you to create a lasting legacy. We offer many ways to make such a provision.
       Among the easiest is to place a bequest to the department in your will. Such a gift does not deplete
       needed income for living expenses, and often allows you to make a more financially significant
       gift than would have been possible during life.  

We appreciate your partnership and continued support of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Robert E. Rice Student Scholarship recipients comments

Jordan Lippett - (Junior - EE)
"Well, I can only speak for myself. Specifically speaking, the scholarship I received was a blessing as it allowed me
to buy a laptop (which I needed for my microcontroller class.) Generally speaking, it was an acknowledgment of my
academic success and motivating force to continue to excel."

Joe Daley - (First year, undeclared)
"Scholarships play a big role in releasing some of the financial stress that college can cause. For some students,
a scholarship is the deciding factor on whether they can go to college and this is very important since there are
many bright minds out there who can't go to college simply because they don't have the finances."

Jason Brown - (Junior, EE)
"Scholarships have such a big impact towards an individual's school and career path. While less time at a job
and more time studying is a major benefit, scholarships give students more time for involvement which gives
students more rewarding journeys along their paths of education.
