Dottie Sanders Endowed Scholarship

Throughout her lifetime, interior design alumna Dorothy “Dottie” Sanders (’57) was a generous donor to the university. She passed away in May 2015 and left a substantial gift, creating a lasting endowment that will provide a $14,000 annual scholarship for interior architecture students. Endowed scholarships help our students and give the college a competitive edge in student recruiting.


Ways to Give Your Resources

Whether big or small, your support makes a difference. Here are some of our giving options; choose what’s right for you:

Planned Estate Gift

A giving option that allows you to make a bequest in your will to benefit the college. Your gift can be designated according to your preferences.



Endowed gifts are long term and make the biggest impact. An endowed gift is made up of a donation that is invested, and the interest from the investment provides recurring scholarships, travel awards or other long-term support for students and faculty.


College Fund for Architecture and Design

Supports academic excellence in the College of Architecture and Design. The College Fund rewards faculty, provides scholarships, upgrades equipment, and underwrites experience learning and study abroad, among other uses.


School Funds

These funds give our schools leverage to enhance technology, support research and provide programs for students:

  • Architecture Development Fund
  • Interior Architecture Development Fund
  • Landscape Architecture Development Fund
  • School of Design (Graphic Design) Fund


Annual Gift for Scholarship/Travel Awards

Off-campus study is required for undergraduate Architecture students and highly encouraged by the schools of Interior Architecture and Landscape Architecture. Students also sometimes need support to attend conferences and other learning opportunities. An annual gift can open these possibilities for students.
