Giving to the Robotics Institute
The Robotics Institute welcomes gifts – gifts that further the innovations of our students and faculty. Choose a fund from the three below, then decide whether you prefer giving online or check by mail.
Robotics Innovation Fund
One of the strengths of the Robotics Institute is the entrepreneurial nature of its students, faculty, and staff. The Director’s Innovation Fund is used by the Director to fund new ideas that emerge during the year that are not covered by the current operational budget or sponsored projects. In addition, the Director uses support from this fund to improve the quality of life for graduate students.
Robotics Professorship Fund
Robotics faculty choose the RI for its environment – exceptional colleagues who collaborate on many projects and an entrepreneurial culture unlike anywhere else. Our faculty members spend significant amounts of time searching for resources to support their research. With additional financial support from a professorship fund, our faculty can focus their work on creating and sharing new and exciting research. Professorships may be funded in one time gifts, installments, or to the endowment to provide funding in perpetuity.
Robotics Fellowship Fund
Graduate students are the heart of the Robotics Institute. By supporting this fund, you help ensure the Robotics Institute remains at the forefront of innovation. Fellowships may be funded in one time gifts, installments, or to the endowment to provide funding in perpetuity.
