How to make an impact
There are many great places to give in the College of Engineering; however, you can make the biggest impact by giving to our most important priorities.
Help students impacted by COVID-19
Your gift is important right now. You can help Carnegie Mellon students during this unprecedented time.
- College of Engineering Dean’s Innovation Fund
You can provide integral support for undergraduate and graduate research—helping projects to get back up and running when students can safely return to campus. In addition, this fund can also provide support for students interested in broadening their experience at the university outside the classroom, offsetting out-of-pocket costs for students to take part in these important experiences, such as professional development, that shape their time at Carnegie Mellon.
For information about how the university is assisting students impacted by COVID-19, visit the Tartan Emergency Support Fund.
Build the future of the College
- The Scaife Hall Fund
Carnegie Mellon University will be breaking ground on a new Scaife Hall in 2020. Your gift to this fund will support the construction of the building’s expanded, technology-rich labs; modern, flexible classrooms; and spaces that facilitate formal and informal collaborations. The building will more than double the size of the existing one, expanding the footprint on Frew Street, forming an engineering and maker quad with Hamerschlag and ANSYS Halls, and creating a new entrance to campus.
