Giving to Materials Science & Engineering

Your contribution to the MSE Annual Fund, no matter its size, enables the Department to continue to produce world class material scientists.

The simple truth:

Despite the department having highly succesful sponsered research programs and execllent industry ties, many of our funds are restricted to pre-defined purposes. Your support is the only financial source for certain types of departmental expenses. Numerous examples of Contribution Connnections can be seen in the our newsletters which show the direct impact of the gifts large and small that generous alumni have contributed.

Your contributions support our priority areas:

  • Faculty excellence: Recruiting and retaining the finest faculty
  • Graduate student excellence: Competing for the strongest graduate students
  • Undergraduate student excellence: Enabling the nation's most outstanding high school students to attend U.Va. majoring in MSE
  • Innovation and leadership: Facilitating special initiatives in education, research, and service
