The WVU Day of Giving is one of the most impactful ways to address the needs of students in the Statler College. Not only does this annual fundraiser help alleviate financial stressors from students, but it also gives them a more valuable educational experience through improved equipment in labs and increased funds for student organizations and competitions.
We urge you to participate—no matter the size of the gift. While your gift can be counted towards any fund that you choose, we are putting a special emphasis on the following funding opportunities:
Unrestricted gifts help cover costs other funding may not cover and are readily available to be easily directed where needed most, such as the financial assistance to students for fees for certifications, professional conferences, travel, and registration This fund also helps the college tackle upgrades to teaching labs and student study areas.
A continued emphasis on financial aid and merit scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students will ensure affordability and enhance competitiveness for recruiting and graduating our students.
There are nearly 50 student organizations in the Statler College involved in everything from K-12 STEM outreach to making Formula-style race cars. This fund provides students with hands-on learning experiences that are important to their professional development and future career success.
