Give to the Graduate College

Invest in NAU grad students 

The Council of Graduate Schools calls graduate education “the backbone of American competitiveness and innovation” – absolutely key to a prosperous and secure future. The Commission on the Future of Graduate Education projects that 2.5 million new jobs will require a master’s or doctoral degree between 2008 and 2018. 

It is the Graduate College’s top priority to ensure that all our students have access to a quality education that can lead to exceptional contributions to their communities, disciplines, and country.

Scholarships, fellowships, travel awards, and research support provide much-needed aid to graduate students, defraying the expenses associated with pursuing an advanced degree.  Our ability to offer these competitive opportunities to our students assists NAU in:

  • attracting bright students
  • hiring excellent graduate teaching assistants
  • producing more nationally recognized research
  • enticing sought-after faculty to join our staff

Financial assistance for graduate students is far more limited than for undergraduates. As adults, graduate students often have families of their own or care for elderly parents while seeking a graduate degree.

So many graduate students need assistance to fulfill their extraordinary potential. Help them soar through your gift to the Graduate College
