CLAS Faculty, Staff, and Friends Scholarship 2017
No one understands the importance and value of liberal arts education better than the faculty and staff of the University of Iowa College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
Now—through the CLAS Faculty, Staff, and Friends Scholarship campaign—we can join together to help one or more young scholars earn their degree in the arts, humanities, natural/mathematical sciences, or social sciences.
We don’t know what professions or technologies will exist in 25 or 50 years, and we may only have a glimpse of the challenges and opportunities our society will face in the future. But we do know that to thrive, our students will need the essential qualities that liberal arts education offers:
- A lifelong thirst for knowledge and understanding of the world and its citizens
- An ability to communicate persuasively, think creatively, adapt quickly, and be open to emerging ideas and technologies
- The capacity to work with colleagues with diverse expertise and backgrounds to solve problems and develop new frontiers
Please pitch in today to the CLAS Faculty, Staff, and Friends Scholarship campaign—and encourage your colleagues to do the same. Email the link to this page to anyone you think may be interested in helping out, and please share on Facebook!
If you wish, you can give anonymously, and your gift amount can stay hidden.
The student(s) chosen for this scholarship by the faculty on the CLAS Scholarship Committee will know that we have their back.
And CLAS faculty and staff—as well as anyone else who believes in the power of a UI liberal arts and sciences education—will take pride in knowing that together we have helped hardworking students find and develop their talents, strive for their goals, and realize their dreams of an undergraduate degree.
Please contribute today!
(Please note that your gift will be made to the CLAS Nonendowed Scholarship Fund and then directed to support this initiative.)
