Support the College

Support for our work comes in many forms – partnerships, collaborations, sponsorships, direct contributions, gifts, grants, and research funds. Although UNC Charlotte is a state-supported institution, state funding does not cover the College of Arts + Architecture's total budget. The difference is generated by investment income (endowments), student fees, and private gifts from individuals and corporations. Your support means we can attract qualified students and skilled faculty and produce work both unique and critical to the disciplines of the arts and architecture.

Making a gift to the College of Arts + Architecture is simple: click here. Please indicate which part or activity of the College you are interested in supporting. We seek financial support focused on the following areas:

  • Student Scholarships:  Both need- and merit-based support for our students is the most critical need to help build our programs.
  • Research and Special Programs:  We produce work both applied and experimental in nature that requires special funding for artistic and scientific collaborations.
  • Publications:  The CoA+A intends to publish its work in print and alternative media.
  • International Study:  The College is committed to the value and learning outcome of international programs and needs support to maximize the exposure of students to these opportunities.
