Meet Erica Porter. The recipient of the Science Leadership Scholarship, Erica graduated in May with a chemistry degree. This fall, she will travel to Paris on a Fulbright Scholarship to conduct tuberculosis research at the Institut Pasteur.
Erica’s ability to attend college was made possible by the generous support of a member of the Mason community. This past year, over half of Mason’s student body depended on some sort of financial aid to attend school.
Gifts of any amount make a difference to Mason students who may not otherwise have the financial means to achieve their dreams. To support Mason scholarships, please visit give.gmu.edu.
About Annual Giving
This year, George Mason University is faced with more than $17 million in state budget cuts. These cuts affect everything from scholarships, to class size, to faculty retention, to program budgets.
Generous gifts from alumni, parents, faculty/staff, friends, and students help to close the gap state support and tuition cannot cover so that Mason students can continue to receive the best possible educational experience.
Every gift is important and demonstrates a vote of confidence in George Mason University and its future. Annual gifts may be made by check, transfer of stock/securities, or credit card with our Secure Online Gift Form. Regardless of size, your gift shows your Patriot Pride!
The success of the Annual Fund depends on the incredible efforts of several strong volunteer programs. The members of the Annual Giving Committee, the Parent Giving Committee, and the Student Giving Committee all share a strong dedication to George Mason University and help to raise critical financial support for the university. Please contact our office should you be interested in joining any of the above listed committees.
