An endowment is an investment in the future of UTEP – in the lives of those to come – providing a living legacy and a self-renewing source of income that spans generations.
Endowments are also naming opportunities and can be named after yourself, in honor or memory of a loved one, or as a tribute to a specific cause.
In an endowment, gifts are held in perpetuity and invested in a manner that protects the principal from inflation. Leveraged by the investment power of the University of Texas System, endowments continually grow over time to become a long-term source of funding for whatever you wish to achieve with your philanthropy.
Endowed Scholarships provide students with funding for tuition, fees and other costs related to a student’s academic pursuits. You can establish an endowed scholarship with a minimum gift of $25,000, given outright or pledged over five years. And, you can designate this important financial resource to support students in the college, school, department or program of your choice.
Endowed Program Support
Endowed program support provides funding for extracurricular, hands-on educational experiences that offer students avenues to capitalize on their individual strengths and expand their knowledge in their area of study.
You can support the program of your choice with a minimum gift of $25,000, payable over five years.
Student Excellence Endowments
Student excellence endowments provide deans and chairs with funding to support student success directly related to their classroom experience.
Your investment of $25,000 (payable over 5 years) will support experiential learning opportunities that will give UTEP students not only a superior competitive edge when they graduate but also the knowledge they need to become exceptional stewards of their community and the world beyond.
Endowed Academic Positions
Endowed Academic Positions are the pinnacle of faculty distinction at UTEP. Awarded to faculty who hold UTEP’s mission of academic excellence to the highest of standards, endowed academic positions enable our faculty to conduct research, travel, or purchase specialized books and equipment to enhance their expertise and subsequently transfer that knowledge to our students.
