Kellogg School Priorities
An endowed professorship is a prestigious recognition for faculty as it is an endorsement by their peers of their ability in the classroom and on the research front. Chairs are endowed with a gift of $2-3 million.
Endowed Research Funds
Since the faculty is a hallmark of Kellogg, it is crucial to amply fund junior professors that will become the star professors of tomorrow. Well-funded research enables junior professors to establish themselves as thought leaders early in their careers. Endowed research funds to support junior faculty members start at $300,000.
With the continual increase in the cost of tuition, each year there are students who do not attend Kellogg because of the financial burden. Endowed scholarships start at $100,000, which ensures that a scholar will be identified every two years. Donors may select basic criteria for the scholarship, and each year the student sends information about their progress to the donor.
There are a variety of naming opportunities for facilities at the Donald P. Jacobs Center in Evanston, the Chicago campus downtown, and the James L. Allen Center in Evanston. Naming gifts range from $25,000 to $5 million and include study rooms, classrooms, common rooms, the Kellogg Knowledge Emporium, etc.
