In the College of Business and Economics, we’re learning together to meet the opportunities and challenges of a competitive world. Our students are ready to succeed — and lead — come graduation day.
Please consider giving to one of the funds vital to our students’ continued success:
CBE Scholarships Fund
CBE awarded 230 scholarships last year. These awards were funded by donors who gave nearly $700,000 to the college’s Scholarships Fund, bridging the financial divide between students and their goal of graduating college. Your gift will support a student’s ability to get the business education they might otherwise only dream of obtaining.
The most recent scholarship offered through CBE is funded by the Canto-Matthews family, pictured above. From Left to right: Renato and Melanie Canto, their two children, and Melanie's parents, Julie and Wayne Matthews
CBE Dean’s Excellence Fund
This fund provides leadership the flexibility to support college-specific programs and unique student experiences. This year it supported:
- Travel for 10 Executive Shadow Program students to visit companies across the Pacific Northwest and learn from industry-leading executives.
2 CBE networking nights, giving students a chance to meet with 18+ employers twice a year, practice their networking skills and learn about employment opportunities.
Travel for 12 Davis Group students to visit New York and tour the stock exchange and network with college contacts.
Travel for 8 Barker Trading Program students to visit Chicago, tour the mercantile exchange and network with college contacts.
Finishing the Albertson Building Student Level, 4–year-long project.
These experiences are life-changing and lead to careers made possible only by your gift to the Dean’s Excellence Fund.
