ENTX is excited to announce the kick-off of its new Program Enhancement Initiative. As many of you are aware, ENTX in the past has supported its research and graduate programs primarily through research grants. We are working to extend ENTX’s mission through development efforts directed toward new and enhanced projects and programs. ENTX’s goal is to raise more than 13 million dollars which will provide the opportunity to invest in the future – assuring a more secure and healthy environment. Our priority Program Enhancement and naming opportunities are Faculty and Student Support and Operational Enhancements.
Faculty and Student Support
Under faculty and student support, we are offering investment and naming opportunities in student scholarships and fellowships and faculty endowed chairs and professorships.
• Scholarships & Fellowships
Graduate scholarships and fellowships help students pay for their education and are awarded to students with the highest academic
qualifications. These permanent funds generate income that will grow in perpetuity. Having these funds available makes it possible for ENTX
to recruit the best and brightest students from around the world.
• Endowed Professorships & Chairs
Endowed professorships and chairs are awarded to faculty in recognition of their pre-eminent research, teaching, and service. These
permanent funds generate income that will grow in perpetuity. Income from these funds provides salary and research support that will enable
scientists to develop their research program to pursue projects that will establish them as the leader in their fields.
These funds are used to support program activities, including discretionary expenditures, such as an endowed seminar series, pilot research studies, support for recruiting new faculty, alumni activities, ENTX social activities, travel for grant development, publication costs, individual student stipends, and student travel to scientific meetings. They can be given to support general ENTX activities or to support any one of our Strategic Focus Areas.
