Endowed funds provide support for chairs, professorships, scholarships, fellowships, research, travel and internship funds, athletics, libraries and collections. The income generated by these funds strengthens our academic core, enabling us to attract and retain the highest caliber students and faculty.

Named funds may be established to recognize and honor friends, family members, colleagues and mentors, or to simply provide support for the university in perpetuity. 

If you would like additional information about  establishing a fund of your own, contact us or visit Endowing a Fund.


The Louisiana Board of Regents Support Fund (BRSF), administered by the Board of Regents for the benefit of all the colleges and universities in Louisiana, offers matching funds for private gifts for faculty endowment support to reward and retain outstanding faculty who have become nationally recognized in an academic discipline. Visit State Matching Funds for more details.

Please contact us if you have specific questions or would like more information about endowed funds, state matching funds or naming opportunities.
