Support Mechanical Engineering

Scholarships and Fellowships

One of the highest priorities of the College of Engineering is to offer more scholarships to attract and retain the most talented students and help them graduate on time.

Excellence in Engineering

The Excellence in Engineering fund provides the college with valuable unrestricted funding to allocate resources to the areas of greatest need. Areas that may benefit from this fund include student projects, competitions, purchase of equipment for hands-on education and research, K-12 STEM outreach and activities to ensure student and faculty success.

Research/Faculty Support

Support for world-class faculty and research is essential to achieving our goal of making UAA a globally prominent engineering research and education institution. Funding in this area may be directed to startup funds for new faculty, named professorships or chairs or publically distributed research.

Facilities Support

The State of Alaska provided funding for construction of the Engineering & Industry Building, but private support is needed from donors to outfit the new and revitalized building with state-of-the-art equipment for teaching and research. In recognition of generous gifts to the College of Engineering, we are pleased to offer the opportunity to name labs and classrooms in honor of individual donors and industry partners.

Donations at all levels are gratefully appreciated and recognized 

For information about how you can get involved, contact Jayna Combs, senior development officer for the College of Engineering. Outright cash gifts, in-kind donations of equipment, multi-year pledges, gifts of assets and planned gifts may be used to provide support. Companies paying taxes in the state of Alaska may qualify for an education tax credit.
