Designlife Fund

Designlife Fund is a community of alumni, friends, design professionals, and industry leaders whose purpose is to support, nurture, and promote design education at the College of Design through volunteer efforts, special programs and events, and private contributions. The Designlife Fund is affordable where alumni and supporters can contribute to the Designlife Fund for as little as $10/month.

Scholarship and Endowments

The College of Design holds exclusive undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships through the NCSU Foundation that are sustained through endowments and annual contributions. These funds provide financial assistance to deserving students and frequently serve as a deciding factor for potential students when choosing the College of Design over competing programs.

Many endowments commemorate our former faculty members, and all endowments are critical to providing ongoing support for the College's students, faculty, and programs. For information on donating to the College’s Scholarships & Endowments or for more detailed information on giving and volunteering opportunities, contact Carla Abramczyk,
