Your contribution to the Scholarship Excellence Fund demonstrates how much you believe in Murrow students and their dreams. Scholarships support students studying journalism, media production, science and technology communication, advertising, and public relations. Your gift ensures students have the financial support they need to focus on their studies and graduate.
Digital Excellence Fund
Your gift to the Digital Excellence Fund ensures Murrow students have access to leading-edge technology. This endowed fund supports media lab upgrades, equipment software for student rental, and our new loan program and software awards.
The move to remote learning highlighted the fact that not all students have access to a computer powerful enough to run necessary programs to complete their coursework. In response, Murrow College established a laptop loaner program which provides students in need with a laptop from the College for the semester. We also recognized the cost of software can be a barrier for some students and, in response, established technology awards for students in need to pay for programs such as the Adobe Creative Cloud.
Your gift to the Digital Excellence Fund ensures Murrow College students have the technology they need to be successful.
