your senior class gift
Thank you to everyone who supported us this year! 988 of us gave, which is over 80% of our class! And with the support of alumni challenges, we raised more than $104,000 to support student life! We couldn't have done this without all of you, so thanks for making our campaign a huge success.
As one of the premier senior class gift campaigns in the country, our campaign
is a student-led initiative supporting student life. Students have the option of giving to the College Fund, Dean's Fund for Student Life, the Jeff Metcalf Internship Program, and Odyssey Scholarships. The Senior Class Gift is dedicated to sustaining the University’s commitment to excellence in undergraduate education and student life. Student and alumni giving is what makes a great institution like UChicago great.
what we support
Our gift goes to the College Fund, the Dean's Fund for Student Life, the Jeff Metcalf Internship Program, and the Odyssey Scholarships. These funds are the primary sources of general support for students.
The College Fund
ensures that the University can meet its most pressing student life needs that would otherwise go unfunded including financial aid, study abroad, and internships.
The Dean's Fund for Student Life
provides funding for student projects and supports student innovation.
The Jeff Metcalf Internship Program
offers paid internships exclusively to UChicago undergraduates.
The Odyssey Scholarships
gives financial aid to ensure that the most qualified students are able to attend regardless of financial capacity.
Tuition has never covered the full cost of a Chicago education. These funds help make up the difference.
