Scholarships & Endowments

Endowment funds are critical to the mission of University of the Arts and have supported a wide array of needs since the university was founded.

You can establish an endowment at University of the Arts as a legacy for the benefit of the institution through a variety of means. One of the most meaningful gifts of endowment funds is for the establishment of a named scholarship. By creating or contributing to an endowed scholarship, donors ensure that the exceptional talent and artistic ambition of our students are given the well-deserved chance to develop and thrive.

Whether you choose to make a contribution to the endowment for the establishment of a scholarship or for some other purpose, University of the Arts maintains general guidelines. To learn more about making a gift to UArts’ endowment, contact the Office of Advancement
