Fellowships broaden the range of diversity within our ranks and provide graduating students the freedom to make career choices based on their passions, rather than their financial obligations to pay back student loans. While a majority of GSD students currently receive some form of support, less than a third of financial aid funding at the GSD comes from endowed gifts. We must change the economic model for providing financial aid to secure support for the next generation of design leaders.
- Establish an endowed fellowship fund to provide full or partial tuition support for master’s level students.
- Establish an endowed fellowship fund to provide full or partial financial support for doctoral students.
- Support diversity and a global perspective through a multi-year gift for an international fellowship fund.
