An endowed chair is among the most prestigious and meaningful gifts that can be made to an academic institution.

An endowed chair may provide full salary or a salary supplement and fringe benefits for the recipient of the chair, for support staff, or other expenses related to the position.
▼   Endowed Visiting Professorship and/or Scholar
This fund is used to attract prominent scientists to join the faculty in the School for a semester or academic year.

Faculty nominate leading scientists outside the University to be in residence to solve critical problems.
