Create Opportunity

When you think about support for students, you might first think of scholarships, but they represent only part of the story. ASU's Charter calls on us to take responsibility for students' success during their time here and after graduation. We must give them outstanding guidance, mentoring, and chances to apply their learning in real-world situations. Your support for Campaign ASU 2020 will ensure that ASU can provide learning opportunities that enhance the standard curricula.

Although tuition covers the cost of classroom instruction and fees cover costs associated with specific courses, neither provides for the enrichment opportunities that add value and marketability to an ASU degree. Experiences such as study and work abroad, research, internships, service learning, and peer and professional mentoring are essential. With your help, we can make these available to all students, especially those facing financial constraints.


Employers in aerospace engineering say they want students who have had the chance to build something, launch it, fly it, even crash it. Students need to put something together and know how these systems work. Our school can give them the chance to do all of this. Direct support from alumni and donors plays a key role in making these opportunities happen."
