Investing in the Future

The College of Arts and Sciences is the heart of undergraduate education at UAB. We teach every undergraduate on campus via the core curriculum or through one of our 30 majors and 45 minors.

Your support is invaluable in ensuring that our students receive the quality education that, regardless of their course of study, will set them on the path to success.

Student scholarshipThe Excellence Fund

The College of Arts and Sciences Excellence Fund provides support directly to our students. Our goal is to maximize students' learning opportunities and improve their college experience by providing them with unique, experiential opportunities that make them leaders in their fields.

Gifts to the College of Arts and Sciences Excellence Fund play a crucial role in funding our highest priorities—enhancing student engagement and ensuring academic excellence.

New Arts & Sciences Building Campaign

No public or private university in this day and age could possibly function, let alone thrive, without philanthropic support. For us to provide the quality education and opportunities that we provide for our students, we must have support of donors. 

We invite you to partner with us. There are a number of naming opportunities within the new College of Arts and Sciences Building to recognize or pay tribute to individuals or companies.

The new building will be located on the corner of 10th Avenue South and 14th Street South on the Green, as part of the rest of the undergraduate complex. Learn more about the new Arts and Sciences Building.

Departmental Giving

Gifts to one of our 19 departments support priorities such as faculty and graduate student research and travel expenses; undergraduate student projects; events and programs; lectures and guest speakers; and other financial needs that arise during the year.

Endowment Giving

Endowment funds provide crucial support for students, faculty, and programs in perpetuity. They may be established with a minimum commitment of $25,000, generally payable over five years or through an estate gift or life-income arrangement. Named recognition opportunities are also available, allowing you and/or a loved one to leave a lasting legacy of support.

Donors with student

Endowed gifts are intended to permanently support students, faculty, and/or programs as designated by the donor. The power of a permanent endowment comes from the long-term growth of assets, invested and managed by the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and the income from the gifts is directed toward a purpose selected by the donor.
