Areas to Support

Columbia Engineering is pleased to be participating in the Columbia Student Support Initiative, a four-year, $1.4 billion effort to support all students at Columbia by President Lee Bollinger. Through the Initiative, you have an opportunity to join alumni and friends in securing a strong future for the University that will impact Columbians for years to come.

Priority Areas

The Engineering annual fund provides current-use, unrestricted support for the School’s most pressing priorities: Supporting students.

Community Scholarships

Contribute to a community scholarship to generate opportunity for the next generation of leaders, innovators, and problem-solvers.

Class Scholarships

Class gifts bring alumni together to cement the legacies of each class at Columbia Engineering. Class scholarships are also a powerful way to connect alumni across the years: Natalia Dorogi '21 benefitted from the Class of '51 Scholarship and still stays in touch with members of the Class of 1951 even after graduating. It’s never too early or too late to build a shared legacy for the School and Engineering community.

Department Support Funds

From its origins in 1864 as a school of metallurgy and mining, Columbia Engineering has contributed to the growth of a rapidly industrializing nation. Since then, its graduates and faculty have transformed entire industries with inventions including early steamboat technology, a punch card system, FM radio, the Pupin coil, the radio proximity fuse, the Kalman filter, and technology that made the mass production of antibiotics possible. They have also led such groundbreaking projects as New York’s first subway and the world’s first nuclear submarine. Today, Columbia Engineering continues to aspire to bring our engineering impact to the service of humanity. Make an impact by supporting the work of Columbia Engineering departments.

Class of 2024:

“Simply put, without the financial aid I received, Columbia would not have been an option for me. To be able to have this tremendous opportunity without that weight on my shoulders is something that I will be forever grateful for.”
