State Matching Funds

Endowed chairs and professorships provide financial support that rewards distinguished scholars and teachers who have become nationally recognized in an academic discipline.

The minimum donation amounts currently required for Tulane endowed chairs and professorships generally are $1.5 million for a chair, $600,000 for a professorship for experienced faculty, and $300,000 for an early career professorship. Higher minimum donation amounts may be required for chairs or professorships in particular disciplines.

For detailed information on Tulane endowed fund minimum donation amounts, please contact us.

The Louisiana Board of Regents Support Fund (BRSF), administered by the Board of Regents (BOR) 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. Matching fund awards are the decision of the BOR, and are not guaranteed. The minimum donation amounts to establish endowed chairs or professorships do not include matching fund awards.
