Endowment Levels

An endowment creates financial stability, allowing NC State to be less dependent on unpredictable sources of revenue, such as research sponsorship, state and national government aid. The recently concluded Campaign for NC State Students allowed NC State and the university-related foundations to greatly increased the endowed funds for scholarships and fellowships.
