College of Engineering and Applied Science Giving Initiatives

The University of Cincinnati's College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) strives to provide the knowledge and skills graduates need to excel in today's global economy. 

CEAS must ensure that students have scholarship assistance in addition to hands-on experience with the most up-to-date equipment so that, upon graduation, they will make immediate contributions in their chosen fields.

CEAS looks to individuals and alumni who understand the world’s dependence on technology and the critical need for leaders with knowledge and advanced skills. Please consider supporting CEAS and make an annual, endowed or planned gift to the UC College of Engineering and Applied Science. Each gift makes a difference.

CEAS Funding Opportunities

Dean’s Discretionary Fund
The Dean’s Discretionary Fund supports lab upgrades that keep CEAS in step with industry advancements and maintains the College’s leadership role. It is also used to support conferences, symposiums, field trips, student competitions and other experiential learning programs that prepare CEAS students for their careers.

Many scholarship funds exist at the College, and you may choose to contribute to a specific department’s scholarship fund. A contribution to scholarship funds like the Barbara Barkley Memorial Scholarship Fund and others help CEAS attract high-quality students and open doors for students at CEAS.

Department & College Scholarship Examples:

  • General Scholarship Fund provides need-based scholarships to students enrolled in the College of Engineering and Applied Science

Alumni Engineering Learning Center
The College is constructing a state-of-the-art learning center in Rhodes Hall that will be the academic home for engineering students during their freshman and sophomore years.  This is a gift from current alumni to future alumni.

Designed with input from engineering students, the Alumni Engineering Learning Center will be a pre-eminent teaching and learning facility, complete with: 

  • classrooms, open study areas, and faculty offices
  • immediate access to faculty in their offices as well as math and science instructors
  • accommodations for 175 students with mobile tables and chairs 
  • an experimental classroom where students will provide immediate feedback to the instructor using "clickers"

Student Emergency Fund
The Student Emergency Fund was created to assist students in good academic standing who experience emergencies or have short-term financial needs not met by federal and state loans and grants.


The Baldwin Society
The Baldwin Society is the College’s recognition society for all engineering gifts totaling $1,000 or more in a twelve month period.  Established in 1994 by a group of (then) College of Engineering Alumni, the Baldwin Society strives to encourage private philanthropic support for the College of Engineering.  Baldwin Society members are recognized on the College’s Annual Honor Roll of Donors, receive invitations to special Baldwin Society and College events and a bi-annual newsletter, as well as membership in the Charles McMicken Society.
