Giving to the Department of Sociology

Ferris S. Ritchey and a scholarship recipient.

The Department of Sociology and UAB's College of Arts and Sciences could not do what we do without your support. Traditional revenues such as tuition, fees, federal grants, and state funds provide for daily work, but they often vary with the level of state revenues and enrollments.

Gifts from you create a secure, concrete foundation for our future success. They benefit not only students and faculty but also the community as a whole.

Giving Funds

You can contribute to the Department of Sociology in a number of ways:

The Department of Sociology General Fund

Your gift to the Department of Sociology General Fund provides the department with flexibility to support key priorities of the department. Your support allows us to continue to provide outstanding academic programs and world-class research.

Annie P. and Ferris S. Ritchey Endowed Scholarship in Sociology

The Annie P. and Ferris S. Ritchey Endowed Scholarship in Sociology is named in memory of Ferris and Annie Ritchey. The scholarship is used to assist deserving students who are enrolled in the Department of Sociology at UAB with preference being given to first-year Sociology students.

Dr. Mike Wilson and Professor Becky Trigg Endowed Award

The Dr. Mike Wilson and Professor Becky Trigg Endowed Award is named in memory of Professor Becky Trigg and in honor of Dr. Mike Wilson for their dedication and commitment to improve the lives of women.
