Support the Department of Biology

There are many areas within the biology department where your gift can have a significant impact for our students and faculty. Your donation can either establish a new scholarship or sustain an existing one. It can support state-of-the-art equipment, technology and facilities for our students and faculty. Private gifts can enhance our undergraduate research programs, providing opportunities for students to conduct research alongside biology faculty.
