The matching funds provided by the state, together with the original private donations from donors, will finance three endowed chairs and 30 endowed professorships at Tulane.

Funding for the Board of Regents Endowed Chair and Professorship Program is generated from a permanent trust fund that was approved by voters in 1986. The original principal was part of a settlement between the state and federal governments over disputed offshore oil and gas royalties.

Commissioner of Higher Education Joseph Savoie is making campus visits across the state to present matching funds checks to various universities.

Institutions participating in the September ceremony include Tulane University, Xavier University, Loyola University, Our Lady of Holy Cross College, Louisiana State University and the University of New Orleans. Tulane University state-matched endowments for 2006:
