The department has two separate endowment funds, the Philosophy & Religion Endowment Fund and the Mehl Philosophy and Religion Scholarship Fund. These funds are currently used to provide awards for the two best student papers each year, one in philosophy and one in religious studies, and to support student participation in and attendance at undergraduate conferences in philosophy and religion. Once the endowments reach a base amount of $25,000.00 (they are now at approximately $15,000 each), they will be used to provide book scholarships to at least one student in each program each semester.
Your donations to either of the department endowment funds will be greatly appreciated and help to provide valuable support to deserving students. Just follow this link to make your contribution!
