Support Graduate Education

Your gift = student success

Giving to the Graduate College is a direct gift to student success. Through UI Grad Success, the Graduate College is forging relationships with campus, community, and national partners to broaden the training available to UI graduate students. In an increasingly competitive job market, the UI Graduate College is redefining educational pathways to career success for our scholars.

Worth supporting

Graduate education at the UI is worth supporting, with more national dissertation award winners and finalists than any institution, public or private. With five dissertation award winners and twelve finalists in the Council of Graduate Schools CGS/UMI Distinguished Dissertation Award competition, the University of Iowa leads the nation’s public institutions in high-quality dissertations. Iowa is tied with Yale, which also has five winners. Our donors’ gifts become fellowships, scholarships, and travel grants, providing crucial support for students during their dissertation writing process.

Please consider making a gift to the Graduate College general fund to help further our efforts in graduate education.
