SAFS students, faculty, and staff are immensely fortunate to have benefited from numerous endowments over the years. Our School’s programmatic flexibility and creativity are testimony to the incredible support provided by our alumni and friends. Endowments enable us to attract the best graduate applicants, support undergraduate research, fund faculty and student programs, upgrade equipment and facilities, and leverage other funding sources through matching funds. In many cases, undergraduate and graduate studies would not be possible without the longstanding generosity of these endowments.
